- In your income tax return, complete the ON-BEN Application for the Ontario Trillium Benefit and the Ontario Senior Homeowner's Property Tax Grant.
- Based on the information you provided when you filed your tax return, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) will send you a notice if you are eligible for the credit.
