Ontario Government Support for Families
About 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.
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
This funding can help parents with the costs of workbooks, educational apps, educational subscription services, movies and other tools to support learning at home.
Parents refers to parents, guardians, and caregivers
There is no income cap on this program. All parents are eligible if you have a child who is:
- aged 0 to 12
- aged 0 to 21 with special needs
If you have more than one child, you must submit one application per child.
