A-13.1.1 - Individual and Family Assistance Act

Full text
90. A person must repay to the Minister an amount granted under a last resort financial assistance program following an event giving rise to the exercise of a right by the person or the person’s dependent child by judicial proceedings or any other means, whether or not the right is a personal right, and whether or not the amount had been granted to the person or the person’s family at the time of the event.
The amount of the repayment is due from the realization and up to the value of the right; the amount is established by applying the rules for the calculation of resources set out in sections 55 and 61.
If a person did not declare the prospective realization of a right to the Minister and the amount the right represents should, according to the law, have been paid to the Minister, the amount can be seized by the Minister despite any provision of law to the contrary. The same applies to property acquired with the amount derived from the realization of the right.
