Canadian Dental Care Plan for Seniors

Eligibility criteria

To qualify for the CDCP, you must:

  • not have access to dental insurance

    This means you don’t have dental insurance:

    • through your employer or a family member’s employer benefits, including health and wellness accounts

    • through your pension (previous employer) or a family member’s pension benefits

    • purchased by you or a family member or through a group plan from an insurance or benefits company

  • have an adjusted family net income of less than $90,000

  • be a Canadian resident for tax purposes

  • have filed your tax return in the previous year

If you have dental coverage through a provincial, territorial or federal government social program, you can still qualify for the CDCP. If you meet all the eligibility criteria, your coverage will be coordinated between the 2 plans to ensure there are no duplication or gaps in coverage.
