Seniors at Risk

Since July, many seniors receiving the CPP Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) have been having their benefit reduced or eliminated if they received payments from pandemic income support programs like the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB).

Are you a senior that has lost their GIS or seen it significantly reduced, or is this happening to someone you know?

Daniel has been raising this issue in Ottawa. He has heard from seniors here at home and across the country who have suddenly seen their income reduced by hundreds of dollars and are on the cusp of homelessness.

He wants to know how these cuts are affecting you and your neighbours so he can make the best case in Ottawa to help.

If these cuts are affecting you or someone you know, you can contact Daniel’s office at 204-984-2499 or [email protected].

Prior to the pandemic, were you working to supplement your pension benefits?
