About Government Benefits

Various income support programs exist to provide financial benefits to those who do not have the resources to meet their basic needs, like food, clothing and shelter. Income supports as well as affordable housing and rental assistance can be a few mouse clicks away for those who are struggling with meeting those needs. Similarly, government programs like GST rebates, childcare assistance, and medical expense tax credits could be additional source of incomes for lower-income Calgarians.
