Residency Requirement:

On December 31 of the previous year, you must have resided in Ontario at least since December.

Age: To qualify, an individual must turn 18 at some time during their benefit year (July 1st through June 30th).

Marital Status: Weather currently single, married, cohabitating common law partner or widowed at some time within the benefit year is irrelevant; all types are welcome!

Dependencies: To qualify as a dependent, either having had or had previously held a spouse/common-law partner during your benefit year is mandatory, or being the parent who currently resides or previously lived with your children at some time during said benefit year is also a necessity.

Income: Bounce Back Taxation provides that after deductions your net income cannot surpass certain thresholds that vary based on family size and other personal factors, with living arrangements within public care facilities (i.e. nursing home) having to meet specific conditions outlined. You cannot receive aid unless paying directly for it as accommodation costs will then need to be covered as well.

Your death cannot occur (with some limited exceptions).
