December 7, 2020 - The Ontario Government announced that they will be providing one-time funding to all eligible parents/guardians to help offset the cost of the 2020/2021 school year. 

Eligible parents or guardians will receive a one-time payment of:

  • $200 for each child up to age 12
  • $250 for each child or youth up to age 21 with special needs

The deadline to apply is January 15, 2021.

Eligibility

You are eligible to apply if you are a resident of Ontario and a parent or guardian to a child:

  • up to age 12
  • up to age 21 if they have special needs

A child with special needs is:

  • any student reported to be receiving special education programs or services by their school board
  • any child enrolled in licensed child care reported to be receiving special needs funding or support
  • any child identified as having a special need

It doesn’t matter if your child is enrolled in school or child care. All children are eligible based on their age.

You are eligible if your child:

  • attends a publicly funded school
  • attends a private school
  • attends a First Nation operated or federally operated school
  • attends school in-person or online
  • is homeschooled
  • is enrolled in child care
  • is at home

If you received funding under programs that are now closed, like the Support for Parents or Support for Families, you can still apply.
