Federal Budget: Invest in seniors’ care and income security

With federal finance minister Bill Morneau looking for input into his government’s first budget, now is the time to renew the call for a national seniors strategy that includes increased investment in home care, long-term care and income security.

You can send a message to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau through the DemandAPlan campaign, which CURC supports. That site also has a link for writing to the finance minister. While you’re asking them both to use the budget to support the DemandAPlan calls to action, don’t forget to remind them that Canada’s lowest-income seniors need an immediate increase in Old Age Security and the Guaranteed Income Supplement.
