Who Is Eligible?

This program is for Manitobans who:

  • Have a severe and prolonged disability that challenges daily living, AND
  • Are financially eligible for income assistance

Some people will automatically meet these requirements. For others, there will be a few steps to apply and find out whether the program is right for them.

People who are instantly eligible

You will be welcomed into the program right away if you receive EIA Disability (now called Medical Barriers to Full Employment) plus one or more of the following qualifying disability supports:

  • Receiving  Community Living DisABILITY Services
  • Living in a personal care home
  • Receiving Canada Pension Plan Disability benefits

Other Manitobans

All Manitobans living with severe and prolonged disabilities may apply for the program.

If you apply, you will be evaluated to find out whether you meet the basic eligibility requirements. We will look at:

  • Your financial situation, and
  • The unique impact of your disability.

A decision will be made on whether all eligibility requirements have been met. Decisions will be appealable to the Social Services Appeal Board.
