Shelter Allowance Program
Société d'habitation du Québec
To notify Revenu Québec of the death of a shelter allowance recipient, the person’s death certificate or act of death must be provided as proof of death. These documents are issued by the Directeur de l’état civil and are the only recognized official documents. Other proof may also be required, depending on the situation (check with Revenu Québec).
If the beneficiary had a spouse or dependant, the shelter allowance will continue to be paid to the spouse or dependant until the end of the reference year. If the beneficiary lived alone, was widowed or had no dependant, payment of the shelter allowance ends in the month following the death.
To notify Revenu Québec of a beneficiary’s death, one of the following documents must be provided:
Monday to Friday : 8:30 a.m. to 16:30 p.m.
