Support for families

While schools and child care centres are closed, parents can apply for direct funding to offset the cost of buying materials to support their children’s learning, while they practice self-isolation and physical distancing.
There is no income cap on this program. Eligible parents will receive a one-time per child payment of:
  • $200 for children aged 0 to 12
  • $250 for children or youth aged 0 to 21 with special needs
If you have more than one child, you must submit one application per child.
To complete the application, you will need:
  • the name of your child’s school and school board (if applicable)
  • your child’s date of birth
  • your banking information
  • a valid email address
