What to Do in the Event of Death

Social Assistance Program

Important Notice

This page is being updated. Meanwhile, as the information currently online may not be complete, we invite you to consult the French version. Thank you for your understanding.

If a close relation who dies was receiving last-resort financial assistance under the Social Assistance Program, you must inform as soon as possible the Centre de communication avec la clientèle of the ministère du Travail, de l'Emploi et de la Solidarité sociale of the date of death.

If the recipient was living alone, the Ministère will cease paying benefits as soon as it is informed of the recipient's death. If the recipient was part of a family, the benefits will continue to be paid for three months following the date of death. Where applicable, the Ministère will calculate the new amount of benefits payable.
