Expanding Access to Dental Care and Affordable Prescription Drugs for Vulnerable Seniors


More low-income seniors will now have access to the quality dental care and affordable prescription medications they need.

Your PC government continues to support Ontario’s seniors by ensuring they have access to the quality dental care and affordable prescription medications they need.

That is why, starting August 1st, 2021, the income eligibility thresholds for the Ontario Seniors Dental Care Program and the Seniors Co-Payment Program will be increased.

This will allow approximately 7,000 more seniors to access the Ontario Seniors Dental Care Program and 17,000 more seniors to access the Seniors Co-Payment Program in 2021-2022.

“We know that good oral health is linked to not only better physical health, but also better overall mental health,” said Raymond Cho, MPP for Scarborough North and Minister for Seniors and Accessibility. “These programs help provide seniors with the dignity they deserve and help to improve their quality of life.”

By ensuring seniors can continue to afford the medications they are prescribed and access effective dental care, we are helping to improve seniors’ quality of life and reduce unnecessary trips to the hospital.
