Purpose of Exempting Income

Certain types of income are fully or partly exempt to make sure:
  • Recipients have incentives to earn money from employment and

  • Applicants and recipients get the benefit of specific federal and provincial income supports available to other Canadians and

  • Recipients have some resources they can use to buy items Income Support (IS) does not supply.
