If one has less than 20 years worked and lived in Canada and doesn't qualify for OAS benefit as he/she wants to continue living in the another country, what is the minimum time he needs still to spend living in Canada per year to reach the 20 years threshold thus becoming fully eligible for the OAS benefit receiving in another country?

I have applied twice for receiving my CPP and OAS payments in my account (Direct Deposit). I have been waiting for several months to see this happening, but it doesn't. I wish I could have it working now. The situation is that I receive those payments, but sometimes (most of them) they arrive with more than 30 days delay. I really don't know what to do with this situation since I never know when I will receive my monthly income (the only one). I hope I can get the information the real information as to when I will start receiving those monthly payments in my account. Perhaps this is not the right place to request this information, but I haven't any other to ask.
Hi José, Unfortunately this is the wrong comment section to ask questions about your CPP and OAS. I would recommend you contact the team responsible for those services directly. You can find their contact information on this page: https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/corporate/contact/cpp.html?_ga=2.97795423.1939207191.1512137691-1370463443.1511876174 Best Regards, Momin Open Government
I think the vast majority of people visiting this site are not at all interested in accumulated statistics in benefits out of country... unless you are a social studies student writing a term paper. We are looking to get an idea of how much we can expect once we retire, as an aid to making that decision. And please don't just explain that you are an IT service provider, not the department that actually provides the info... I you don't have the info we are looking for, please get a summary of the calculation method, with some examples, Respectfully, Roger
Roger, thanks for your comment. I believe that what you're looking for is the Canadian Retirement Income Calculator. You can find it here: https://www.canada.ca/en/services/benefits/publicpensions/cpp/retirement-income-calculator.html. Best wishes, Karin the open-ouvert team
I cannot access this page.
Hi Enma, We were able to access the page without issue. There might have been a server delay at the time of your access, please try again and let me know if the problem persists. Thank you, Momin The Open Government team
The data is useless. Why would I want to know the total paid to all recipients and the number of recipients?
What agency is reponsible of elaborating this table? I´m interested in knowing how many payments are being made outside Canada BY country (not in general).
Hi Rene, The data is owned by Employment and Social Development Canada. I have forwarded your question to them and will post their response here once I receive it. Stay tuned! Momin The Open Government team

I clicked a link to the countries that Canada has a pension agreement with and I got a forum for complaints. How clever to realize that if I don't get the link I was offered that a complaint forum is the next best thing.

Hi, I worked at the Canadian Embassy in Algeria for 9 years while I was an Algerian citizen & contributed to the Canadian Pension Plan. I moved to the US & became a US citizen. Now, I am about to turn 65, I would like to know if I am entitled to the CPP? I could not find the appropriate information to guide that's why I am writing to you. Thanks so much for any help.
I worked in Australia for nearly two years in 1977 through to 1979. This year I will be turning 65 and may be entitled to pension benefits for the time I worked in Sydney. Please provide directions so I can inquire as to possible benefits I may be entitled to.
Stella - your first step would be to have a look here to see if you might be eligible. https://www.canada.ca/en/services/benefits/publicpensions/cpp/cpp-international.html Best wishes, Karin - the open-ouvert team
I applaud the government for this initiative! In this case I would appreciate contextual information. I'm sure I'm not the only one who is not familiar with these programs. This dataset would be better if the terms were defined rather than simply stated. Even better would be a link to further information such as a wikipedia page that discusses the program. If such a page does not exist, a reference to key legislation on the topic would be helpful - because then some citizen may be motivated to create a wikipedia page on the topic. I recommend you expose another category of moderated comment: Suggested links. This would allow anybody to add their own links to the dataset which will provide the context for the data.
Thank you for your feedback. We have forwarded your comment to the dataset provider for their response. Best regards, the Open Government Team
