Ontario Trillium Benefit

Diabetes-induced neuropathic pain.
Lack of circulation causes swelling.
This is an item of interest to those receiving benefits from the Ontario Government.
I am proud to be living in a province where we look after those who cannot look after themselves. The Ontario Trillium Benefit helps those without the means to help themselves.

I have many clients, some on disability, who depend upon our tax dollars for support. For those who cannot support themselves, it is important that we help look after them.
For those Americans who have mocked the Canadian healthcare system, or choose to misunderstand it, you can assure yourselves that poverty is a good indicator of poor health, especially in older women.

For those who are uneducated, without money to pay for particular drugs, or therapies, they will suffer longer and more deeply than the rest of us. FOr those with unmanaged, chronic pain, for example, life is difficult.

For those unable to determine how to eat well, choosing nutritious meals; to exercise sleep deeply and well; practice good hygiene; self-advocate with healthcare professionals; they will continue to suffer. For those who lack hope, something to do, someone to love, lack dignity and self-respect, we must give them a helping hand.

In this part of the world, we must be careful to look out for one another. My tax dollars go into the Ontario Healthcare pot. I am happy to share with those who are sick, unemployable, and unable to support themselves.

On July 10, 2012, the first payment of the monthly Ontario Trillium Benefit will be mailed to homes and deposited into bank accounts. This benefit rolls the payment of Property, Energy and Sales Tax credits into one monthly benefit. Your money. Every month. 
If you qualify for this benefit, based on your 2011 income tax return, you will receive your 2012 tax benefits earlier and more frequently than before. You won’t have to wait until after you file your tax return next year and you can count on regular and predictable access to your tax benefits.
