The Ultimate Guide to Senior’s Discounts in Canada

Cheerful old women communicating during a shopping day and having fun.

Many Canadian businesses offer senior’s discounts, but the terms – size of discount, minimum age required and when the discount is available – varies.  So, figuring out how to get the best value for your hard earned money can be a little confusing. CARP does two things to help:

 

  1. We provide dozens of discounts to CARP members. They are available all the time. Anyone can join CARP at any age.

     

  2. We provide the following list of senior’s discounts. Please note, many businesses do NOT publish the details of their discounts on their website. (So the only way we can make our list comprehensive, and keep it up to date, is with your help. Please email us at [email protected] if we’ve missed any discounts or if any of the discounts below change.)
