The Budget 2019 includes an increase of $9 million for Seniors and Housing to ensure Alberta’s growing seniors population is well-supported. This will mean that they will maintain valuable programs that Alberta’s seniors rely on (such as financial support and programs).
They will also continue to invest in affordable housing units across the province for seniors and low-income people. Senior benefits, including the Alberta Seniors Benefit will be maintained.
