I am a permanent...

I am a permanent resident of Australia who receives a monthly pension. As a Canadian who is considering returning to live in Canada, will I receive this pension there?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
