Old Age Security (OAS) - Number of Persons Receiving OAS Benefits, by Province and by Type

Old Age Security (OAS) - Number of Persons Receiving OAS Benefits, by Province and by Type This dataset provides information on number of persons receiving Old Age Security (OAS) benefits, by province and by type. It is part of the Monthly Canada Pension Plan and Old Age Security Statistical Bulletin - a monthly publication that provides information on the number of benefits and new benefits by place of residence (province). Beneficiaries living outside of Canada are included under their last province or territory of residence in Canada. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Canada Revenue Agency extended the deadline for filing individual tax returns in 2020. This prompted a temporary change in the process of renewing GIS and Allowance benefits. As a result, the number of beneficiaries for GIS and the Allowances in this table are understated for the months from July to December 2020. 2022-09-01 Employment and Social Development Canada open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca Society and CultureOld Age SecurityOASpensionbenefits January 2012 - August 2022CSV https://open.canada.ca/data/dataset/77381606-95c0-411a-a7cd-eba5d038c1c4/resource/ae931981-b9ac-4b5c-9b6b-2c70c1fe448f/download/20220831-svpres-oasben.csv January 2012 - August 2022XLS https://open.canada.ca/data/dataset/77381606-95c0-411a-a7cd-eba5d038c1c4/resource/1564dd36-c934-4393-b9b6-db3356da3ea0/download/20220831-svpres-oasben.xlsx
