The answer would appear to be that a Canadian pension is exempt from garnishment. See: http://www.advocacycentreelderly.org/appimages/file/CPP_&_OAS_Benefits_Exempt_from_Garnishment(1).pdf

Well I guess great but if they can and this person really uses all his pension each month to live as it seems all seniors do these days. So if they where allowed to use a garnishee how do they calculate the amount that they could get from him each month

It seems that 30% is the maximum garnishment allowed in Canada. See: http://www.ehow.com/list_6141099_wage-garnishment-rules-canada.html
