Answer:

In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

MuhtaramMoulana Usman Bodhania (Hafidhahullah),

ODSP (Ontario Disability Support Program) is an income support program offered to individuals with a disability who meet the conditions and requirements set by the government. In order tobe an eligible recipient of the income support, one is obligated to declare one’s household income and other personal information to the government.

As a Muslim applying for such support programs, one must truthfully declare all information required to ensure that the income received is Halal and lawful.

In the enquired situation, you may enter into an official boarder/tenant agreement with your mother.That will also be in conformity to the government requirements for your mother to qualify and receive from ODSP.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
