Canadian Dental Care Plan for Seniors

What is the Canadian Dental Care Plan?


The Canadian Dental Care Plan (CDCP) is a federally delivered public plan that will help ease financial barriers to accessing oral health care for up to nine million uninsured Canadian residents with an adjusted family net income of less than $90,000, with no co-payments* for those with family net income under $70,000. 


*A co-payment is the percentage of the CDCP fees that is not covered by the plan and that people covered under the CDCP will have to pay directly to the oral health provider.



How is the CDCP being rolled out? When can I apply?


To meet anticipated demand and ensure a smooth onboarding experience, the CDCP is being rolled out using a phased approach over several months, starting with seniors.
