Planning for Retirement on a Low Income: What You Need to Know


How do you get the most from income security programs: Old Age Security, Guaranteed Income Supplement, Canada Pension Plan and Ontario Disability Support?   

  • What do seniors get in Ontario?
  • What does low income mean?
  • How do you reduce taxable income or get money back? 
  • How do you protect a low retirement income?
  • Why didn’t you get this advice from the bank?

Ottawa Public Library and the Council on Aging Ottawa are partnering to bring John Stapleton of Open Policy Ontario for a plain language session with clear information and answers to questions. 

Whether you are a senior, approaching retirement, assisting your family or just concerned, please join us on October 25, 6:00-8:00 pm, in Main Branch Auditorium.  

Full list of sessions and registration.
