M-70 Amendment to the Old Age Security Act

44th Parliament, 1st Session

Motion Text

That, in the opinion of the House, the government should consider helping seniors who risk having their Guaranteed Income Supplement benefits suspended, by amending the Old Age Security Act to require the Minister of Employment and Social Development to (i) estimate the income of a pensioner who was unable to make the required statement for up to one year so that the most vulnerable Canadian seniors can have a reliable, secure income, (ii) provide the information and resources necessary to reduce the administrative burden on the pensioner with respect to declaring their income so that daunting paperwork prevents no one from accessing the services they need and are entitled to by Canadian law.
