The Ontario government plans to announce free dental for low-income seniors in its budget, according to a new report by the Canadian Press.
The report states that in order to qualify, residents in Ontario need to be at least 65 and make under $19,300 or $32,300 for couples.
One source told Canadian Press that preventable dental diseases such as gum disease and infections result in over 60,000 emergency visits per year and a “significant portion” of those emergency visits are by seniors.
“It’s really aimed at those who don’t have a supplementary source of income,” the source said, adding that the Ford government is encouraged this will make a difference.
Previously, it was leaked that the Ford government intends to unveil tax rebates for daycare costs.
The full Ontario budget announcement is scheduled for Thursday.
