The Governments of Canada and Alberta provide benefits for seniors. These benefits include:
• Regular monthly pensions
• Health coverage (Alberta only – see Health section)
• Other assistance
Benefits depend on:
• Length of residence in Canada and
• Whether an immigrant is sponsored.
Help may be available if sponsorship has broken down. Seniors should never stay in a dangerous situation because of lack of money. Call 2-1-1 any time to ask for help in your own language. Call 9-1-1 if it is an emergency.
