10.2.5 Provincial and territorial benefit programs

From: Financial Consumer Agency of Canada

Some provinces and territories offer programs and benefits to seniors and retirees. For example:

  • Saskatchewan has a Seniors' Drug Plan, in which seniors pay a reduced amount per prescription for approved drugs.
  • The Ontario Drug Benefit program covers most of the cost of prescription drugs for people 65 years of age and older.
  • In Quebec, the Home Adaptations for Seniors' Independence program provides financial assistance for low-income seniors to help them make minor adaptations to their homes or apartments.
  • Manitoba's 55 PLUS program provides quarterly benefits to lower-income Manitobans who are 55 years of age or over.
