30. A recipient of financial assistance under the Social Assistance Program or a specific program must, every month, file a short form statement of circumstances. A person eligible to receive dental and pharmaceutical services pursuant to section 48 or financial assistance under the Social Solidarity Program or the Youth Alternative Program must file a short form statement when a change in circumstances occurs.
The Minister ceases to pay financial assistance to a person who does not file the short form statement in the manner determined by the Minister, unless the person proves that timely filing was impossible.
