Ontario’s social services minister has apologized after the Mississauga disability support program office mistakenly emailed the private information of 45,000 people to 100 recipients.

“On December 20th, due to a clerical error, the Mississauga ODSP office unintentionally shared some individuals’ information over email,” said Lisa MacLeod in a statement.
