Canadians can rejoice at turning 65 – you are now eligible for the government benefits offered to seniors. In order to spend more time eating cake and less time searching for the benefits that apply to you, provincial and federal benefits are listed in one convenient website. The list briefly summarizes the different benefits available, lets you know what forms or documents you will need to provide to obtain each benefit, and provides you with the contact information for the appropriate government agency (phone number, website, or office address). The benefits offered cover health, housing, and finances. This helpful website is also ideal for attorneys and guardians of property looking to apply for or update the benefits received by an incapable adult.
The resources are out there – this website helps you find them.
