Elders Assistance Pilot Program


Métis Nation British Columbia (MNBC) is launching Elders Assistance Pilot Program to help low-income Elders buy health-related necessities. Eligibility is based on Elders that currently access Old Age Security (OAS) and the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS). The funds can be used to purchase items including hearing aids, dentures, walkers, glasses, and more, totalling up to $2,500. Applicants must be MNBC citizens or be in the application process.
