This funding is intended to provide parents and guardians with essential financial support for children and youth during these unprecedented times.
Parents and guardians will receive a one-time payment of $200 for each child up to grade 12, or $250 for each child or youth up to age 21 with special needs.
Fill out and submit one application per child to receive funding. Only one parent or guardian may apply for each child. Each application will be verified, processed and paid separately. This means that if you have more than one child you may not receive payments at the same time.
The easiest way to receive your payment is through e-transfer.
All you need is access to Internet banking and a valid email address.
You also have the option to receive payment through direct deposit. For this option, please have your banking information ready before beginning this application (bank name, branch number and account number).
You will receive an email in 1 to 3 days containing a confirmation number and confirming that we have received your application. Please be sure to check your junk mail for the confirmation email and to also record your application’s confirmation number.
The deadline to apply is Feb 8, 2021.
