Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada’s seniors will once again be eligible for old age security when they reach 65.
During an interview with Bloomberg TV in New York this morning, Trudeau explained that next week’s federal budget cancels the 2012 decision by the previous Conservative government to increase eligibility to 67, fulfilling one of his campaign promises.
The prime minister says it’s important to support Canada’s seniors and lay the foundation for longer term growth.
Wanda Morris of CARP – A New Vision of Aging – offers her comments on the federal decision to reverse the age of eligibility for OAS, coming up after the 11am News on Zoomer Radio’s Fight Back with Libby Znaimer.
