(Call 613-969-1020 if an appointment is necessary.) An application will not be completed if you do not have the required documents for everyone in the household with you. Only one person per family will be permitted in the office so that social-distancing can be maintained. Covid-19 screening will be done at the door, masks must be worn, and hand sanitizer used.

You will need to scan, photograph or photocopy all of the above proof of eligibility required and include it with your application form. If your documents are not received in a legible format, your online application will be discarded. The link to the online application form will be open for the month of November only.
