36. Except in the cases prescribed by regulation, persons receiving financial assistance must give prompt notice to the Minister of any change in their circumstances or the circumstances of their family that may affect their eligibility or continued eligibility for the measure, program or service, or the financial assistance granted.
Such persons must also file a complete statement or a short-form statement at the Minister’s request or, if applicable, in the cases prescribed by regulation, so that their eligibility or their family’s eligibility under a financial assistance program provided for in Title II may be ascertained or the amount of the assistance to be granted may be determined. The statements must be filed in the manner determined by the Minister.
In no case may a person be required to file a complete statement more often than once per 12-month period. The person may not be required to file a short-form statement more often than once per month.
The Minister may cease to pay financial assistance if a statement is not filed within the prescribed time limit, unless the recipient proves that timely filing was impossible.
