As nobody in my family is disabled, we probably don't qualify for Ontario Disability Support Program. But we're indigent, and I'm downcast to find out only about OESP today! I know about the big ones like Ontario Drug Benefit Program/Trillium Drug Program, Ontario Works, OSAP. But none of their websites mention OESP.

Where can I see a list of all such welfare programs?

In Canada and the U.S., you can dial 2-1-1 on your phone to talk to someone about assistance programs. These phones are usually staffed by the United Way.

Besides the call-in service, they also maintain websites with information about assistance programs:

These websites will direct you to more localized websites for help in your area. For example, the Ontario 211 site is at 211ontario.ca.
