Canada Seniors Guarantee

Canadians believe in taking care of one another. Yet, hundreds of thousands of our seniors are living in poverty. This is unacceptable.

 

Canada Seniors Guarantee

A Jagmeet Singh-led government will implement the Canada Seniors Guarantee to ensure that no Canadian senior has to live in poverty.

  • The Canada Seniors Guarantee will combine a number of existing seniors’ benefits into Old Age Security (OAS). This includes the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS), the Age Credit, and the Pension Income Credit.

  • By adding the Age Credit and the Pension Income Credit, an additional $4 billion will be added to the core benefits provided by OAS-GIS.

Jagmeet Singh will ensure low and middle income seniors see an increase to their benefits - leaving no senior behind.
