Bill C585 / C43 – Residency Requirements for Social Assistance

Wow…. this could have far-reaching consequences for Canadian citizens seeking help through income assistance or welfare. Click here to read the full post or an excerpt below. Learn more about it in this article.



“After a campaign against the backbench member, the government moved the provisions of Bill C-585 into Bill C-43, a bill that implemented the federal government’s 2014 Budget. That bill was passed in the House of Commons and came into law in December 2014.

So far, none of Canada’s provinces have implemented residency requirements as allowed in this law. And with a new federal government, there may be an opportunity to have this law changed.”
