I've recently heard about the federal government looking for ways to save money with cutbacks... I was told from one of my collages that pld was on the table with one of the options being to get rid of pld and lad, and give all members an extra sum of money... anybody hear of anything like this or pld getting relooked at..
No. If your primary residence is occupied and is in Toronto, you will not lose your Toronto PLD while on course.
In fact, they just made an update to what is considered "occupied". It used to be that for your residence to be considered "occupied", you or your dependants had to actually be residing there. So, if YOU were single, you would lose your PLD, because while you're in Borden, your residence would be "unoccupied". However, they've changed the rule to be that it is considered occupied if your HG&E reside there. So, even if the house/apartment is not being lived in, it's still considered occupied if your HG&E are located there.
