GAINS

In addition to the federal programs, some provinces also provide additional retirement income that is means based. In the case of Ontario, there is the Guaranteed Annual Income System (GAINS) which provides for a guaranteed minimum income for Ontario seniors. The payments are based on your income or combined income as a married or common-law couple. It is directly linked to the amount of your federal GIS monthly payments. They range from a minimum of $2.50 to a maximum of $83.00 per month
