New Help Sheet Available: Help Sheet 4 – The Monthly Nutritional Supplement (MNS)

We have produced a new Help Sheet thanks to the support of the Legal Services Society. Our new Help Sheet is on the Monthly Nutritional Supplement (MNS).

To apply for the MNS, applicants must have the Persons with Disabilities designation (PWD) and be in receipt of PWD income assistance. People who qualify for the MNS may receive up to $205 a month for nutritional items and vitamins or mineral supplements.

The application for the MNS has six questions. Our new Help Sheet reviews the questions and uses examples of applicants with various medical conditions to demonstrate how the questions may be answered.

The Help Sheet is accessible from our website at:

If you would like hard copies of the Help Sheet, we are happy to mail them to you free of charge. Please contact Val at 604-875-0188, 1-800-663-1278 or at to place your order.
