After you apply

Service Canada will review and process the application. It can take up to 8 months to hear back about their decision.

You should expect Service Canada to call you or send you a letter to confirm they have received your application. If you do not hear from them within three months, contact the Canada Pension Plan. They may call you again to ask for more information — for instance, a medical evaluation from another doctor. After they have reviewed the application, they will call you with a decision. They will follow up with a letter about the decision.

Important information about benefits for Indigenous Peoples

If you are Indigenous there are many things that affect the benefits you can get and the dollar amounts you can get from them. These include the agreements your band or governing body has with provincial, territorial, and federal governments. Before applying to any benefits, you should speak with your governing body, if applicable.

AFOA Canada and Prosper Canada are currently seeking funding to develop an online tool that serves the needs of Indigenous people living in Canada.
