Secure Retirement

Seniors have a wealth of experience and have contributed immeasurably to the development of the nation we currently celebrate.

In a country as wealthy as Canada, it is unacceptable that our seniors have to fight for everything from safe and secure housing, to a pension that allows them to live with independence and dignity.

Green MPs Will

  • Introduce a Guaranteed Liveable Income to supplement pensions, and ensure no seniors’ income falls below a level necessary to live with dignity  
  • Establish a National Seniors Strategy, investing in a housing strategy that meets the diverse needs of seniors – from those who wish to stay in their own homes, to those in need of quality long-term care  
  • Expand public medical coverage to include prescription medication, ensuring all seniors have access to the critical medications they need, at no extra cost
