I will just briefly weigh in here as a professional Accountant. Doreen's proposal will result in some very wealthy people receiving ODSP benefits.

Millionaires also have children and get divorced. Suppose, for example, that someone with an income of $1,000,000 per year is paying child support for three children. I see from the government's child support tables that in Ontario, the custodial parent would be receiving child support payments of $14,851 per month or $178,212 per year. If the custodial parent had no other income, Doreen's proposal would have that person also receiving ODSP benefits.

I've advocated that 100 percent of child support be given to the custodial parent and none of it clawed back.

I would suggest that perhaps there should be some upper limit of child support payments over which ODSP would be clawed back.
