The Dealhack Canadian Senior Discounts List is the result of our quarterly survey of brands that offer seniors discounts. Every 3 months, our team independently verifies each and every discount on this list. We also add more brands to the list regularly when we come across them.

The list currently includes more than 50 brands conveniently broken down into 7 categories (and further by age groups within each category). You can also save or print the list to use as a handy reference.

Be prepared: Always have a government-issued identification card with you that provides proof of senior status, such as your passport, driver’s licence, provincial health card, or Old Age Status (OAS) card.
