news image

On July 6, the federal government started sending out $300, tax-free, to 6.7 million seniors who receive Old Age Security (OAS) to help cover the added financial burden caused by COVID-19. Some seniors have said they do not need this money and have decided to donate it to charity. The Seniors Giving Back charity has been created for this purpose - it is a registered charity through CanadaHelps. For more information on this initiative, read these news articles from The Province and BC Local News.

Seniors can donate this money through CanadaHelps, here

More information about Seniors Giving Back can also be found on their Facebook page, here.
