General Discount Information for Canadian Seniors

Canadian Association of Retired Persons (CARP): CARP is an exclusive association for Canadians of age 50 and above. The annual fee is $19.95, which allows members to redeem benefits from partner hotels, restaurants, and other businesses. Discounts requiring CARP membership will be indicated throughout the list (source).

Always ask: Senior discounts are not always openly advertised. It’s recommended that you ask a store representative if they offer a discount every time you make a purchase.

Bring your ID: Proof of age is mostly required to get a senior discount. Always bring one government-issued identification card with you wherever you go shopping. These types of ID include your passport, driver’s licence, provincial health card, or Old Age Status (OAS) card.

Check your age: Senior discounts are generally available once you reach 50 years old. Some stores may only offer the discount to customers who are at least 55, 60, 62, or 65 years old. This list easily helps you determine if you belong to the minimum age requirement for a particular store.
