Toronto – February 24, 2013 – Workers’ Compensation Boards/Commissions exist across Canada to help injured workers return to work as quickly and as safely as possible, while providing financial compensation for wages lost due to their workplace injury.
Old Age Security – The Old Age Security pension is a monthly benefit available, if applied for, to most Canadians 65 years of age or over. An applicant's employment history is not a factor in determining eligibility, nor does the applicant need to be retired. Old Age Security pensioners pay federal and provincial income tax. Higher income pensioners also repay part or all of their benefit through the tax system.
