Ontario’s New Democrats say they’ll implement property tax deferrals for seniors if elected next month.
NDP Leader Andrea Horwath says seniors will be able to choose to have the province pay their taxes in the interim.
The homeowner would then reimburse the province when they sell their home.
Horwath says the measure would save about $375 every month for someone who pays $4,500 annually in taxes.
The program is part of the party’s plan to decrease costs for seniors.
That plan also includes $1 billion in home care in an effort to keep seniors living at home longer.
