The participant referred to in the first paragraph is deemed, where the loss of the right to receive an Aim for Employment benefit results from work income received by the participant or the participant’s spouse or the sums received by the participant or by the participant’s spouse as benefits to compensate for the loss of employment income that are paid by the Government of Canada under a program established following the declaration of a public health emergency or a Canada Recovery Benefit related to the COVID-19 pandemic, to be an adult ineligible for a last resort financial assistance program within the meaning of subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph subparagraph 1 or 1.1 of the first paragraph of section 48, depending on the situation. In addition, the participant referred to in the second paragraph is deemed to be an adult within the meaning of subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 48. As such, those participants may continue to receive dental and pharmaceutical services under that section, for the period applicable to them and on the conditions provided for in sections 49 to 51, if applicable.
