MSDPR Retroactive Payments

If you were a client of the Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction between October 2012 and April 2018 and had your assistance amount reduced as a result of earnings you reported, you may be eligible for retroactive payments from the Ministry. This is only if you are no longer a Ministry client but were during the time period listed above; individuals who fit the criteria and are still Ministry clients will have already received these retroactive payments. 

If you think you or someone you know may be eligible for retroactive payments, please do not contact DABC – please contact the Ministry directly at 1-866-866-0800.
