Supporting our Seniors


Dear Neighbour, 

Many individuals and families are facing different challenges due to the situation resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. We are supporting Canadians with an evolving response that adapts to new challenges as they arise. 

Seniors play an important role in our community and are particularly vulnerable during these uncertain times. This past week our federal government announced new measures to ensure Canadian seniors are supported and have access to the resources they need during COVID-19. 



Providing a one-time tax-free payment - New!


Extending the Guaranteed Income Supplement & Allowance Payments - New!

Please Note: In order to avoid interruptions in receiving benefits, seniors are encouraged to submit their 2019 income information as soon as possible and no later than October 1, 2020


Providing Immediate and Essential Services to Seniors  - New!

These activities can include: 

Please Note: The Final Report Deadline for all 2018-2019 New Horizons for Seniors Program community-based recipients has been extended to December 31,2020

Reduced Minimum Withdrawals for Registered Retirement Income Funds

My team and I continue to work hard every day to respond to the needs and concerns of our community. We are still dealing with a high volume of urgent requests but are committed to responding to every constituent. 

We are also focused on ensuring that everyone has the most up-to-date information and that it is accessible. For daily updates, follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, or visit my website.
