Welcome to The Ontario Sick Day Relief Project
The current Ontario government has failed to protect essential workers and all Ontarians from COVID-19. The Ontario Sick Day Relief Project is an emergency fund to support essential workers through the COVID-19 crisis in Ontario.
This fund does not replace the need for government policy to mandate paid sick days.
The Ontario Sick Day Relief Project is a grassroots, community-led initiative that provides money to essential workers to enable them to take time off work due to COVID-19. We manage a community crowdfunding project and application process to make sure funds find their way to essential workers in need.
