My employment benefits ran out, I was beginning my second term of achieving an associate’s degree in the field social service and the employment office would not continue to help me. However, they stress the importance of achieving a degree, but they will not assist you if your time runs out. I wanted to continue but because of this situation, I am faced with a student loan along with other obligation that I cannot meet which means I credit history will also be ruin. So should you decide to continue your education please be sure you have enough time invested in your benefits or you can qualify for a full grant.
Im canadian born, 47 and I left alberta 4 years ago and moved to ottawa. I got a job right away at 24 a hour in my field and got a nice apt. I had that job for 8 months then mom got cancer so had to leave my job. Since then I was on EI and then welfare for the first time in my life! I dont have a husband or children. I cant go back to New Brunswick there is no work there. I have done retail, office admin, security and had great jobs all my life until 2008 its been very hard. I lost my apt and ended up homeless for 2 days then lived in a B and B for 7 months, then had another place but l ost that due to high rent and hydro and no work. I looked 2 hrs a day for work. My dad was a lawyer and I grew up middle class! I now live in gatineau and I got a temp job in March for 11 an hour but I was backup up on rent and had no money for bus fare. I applied to welfare here and was denied- it took them 5 weeks to decide to deny me. I went to work a mess every day with no food, didnt know if Id have money to get home- and it affected my work. I ended up with another temp job so took it at 11 an hour so worked 7 months straight. Im out of work again and I had no income since Sept 30th. I only can pay rent and will have 150 left for food and bus for month of November. Food prices are very high too. I have to keep my cell going as I dont have a regular phone because I had to live in rooms since I moved to ottawa - if u dont have fulltime work u cant get your own apt and I dont have the money the landlords ask for rent is 2000!! I dont have credit cards I used to when i worked for the police.....Im very scared. Im alone here my family is not here....I also dont have a car so I have to walk everywhere and I have bad feet that bleed at times. I also have a slumlord who has not turned on our heat yet.........
I have the highest score at the ottawa hospital in data entry but I cant get a job there - I dont speak french.......
