Original language of petition: French

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • Old Age Security is a universal benefit for eligible individuals aged 65 and over;
  • On March 8, 2021, the House of Commons passed a motion endorsing a $110 per month increase in Old Age Security starting at age 65;
  • In the latest budget, for 2021–2022, the federal government is insisting on creating two classes of seniors, and as a result, it is ignoring over 3 million people aged 65 to 74;
  • The pandemic increased costs of all kinds for all seniors; and
  • Benefits needed to catch up even before the pandemic.
We, the undersigned, residents of the riding of Shefford and other Canadian ridings, call upon the Government of Canada to:
1- Significantly and immediately increase the Old Age Security pension so that, after three years, all eligible seniors aged 65 and over receive $110 more per month; and
2- Increase the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) by $50 per month for single individuals and $70 per month for seniors with a partner.
