Legal aid clinics, anti-poverty advocates and municipalities are declaring victory in the wake of the Ford government’s decision to roll back a provincial welfare cut to some of the province’s most vulnerable children.

The province is also reversing harmful changes to people on welfare with part-time jobs.

As the Star reported Thursday, the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services informed municipalities late Wednesday that the province had scrapped its plan to eliminate the $67 million Transition Child Benefit on Nov. 1.
