>> Au cours des dernieres annees, les chercheurs anglophones et francophones au Canada ont participe au defrichement de ce terrain fertile; l'on peut en trouver la preuve en naviguant sur les sites Web du CSHC
et de THEN/HiER (The History Education Network/ Histoire et Education en Reseau).
In contrast, the SCA is an ongoing payment of $200 per year (paid in two installments) for each CSHC holder, and is also indexed against the CPI.
Eligibility for the SCA is determined by whether an elderly person holds the Commonwealth Seniors Health Card (CSHC).
In contrast, access to CSHC is not subject to an asset test, (8) and the income thresholds are set high.
Then again, in 2000 the CSHC eligibility requirements were lifted in response to the introduction of the new Goods and Services Tax (G.S.T).
(10) Among other independent bodies, the National Welfare Rights Network and the Council of Social Services have argued against the concessions made available to CSHC holders.
(15) A similar argument was made when the income eligibility requirements for the CSHC were increased in 2001, when it was argued that: 'This measure further recognizes the important contribution made by self funded retirees in providing for their own retirement'.
