Chapter 5 > Restoring the Eligibility Ages of the Old Age Security Program
As an essential part of the Government's plan to strengthen public pensions and improve the lives of Canadian seniors, the eligibility ages of the Old Age Security program will be restored. Budget 2016 proposes to cancel the provisions in the Old Age Security Act that increase the age of eligibility for Old Age Security and Guaranteed Income Supplement benefits from 65 to 67 and Allowance benefits from 60 to 62 over the 2023 to 2029 period.
The Old Age Security Act hasn't been changed yet as of March 22, 2016. That promise status will be updated when the Act gets updated. Here is the age provision in the Act (copy-paste the full link in your address bar): http://laws.justice.gc.ca/eng/acts/O-9/FullText.html#s-2.2ss-(2)ID0ECCA
