Support for Families

As part of the 2021 Ontario Budget the Ontario Government will be providing a third round of payments to support parents through the Ontario COVID-19 Child Benefit, totaling $1.8 billion since last March.

  • The payment will be doubled to $400 per child for this round and $500 for each child with special needs

If you missed applying for the Support for Learners program, you will have the opportunity to apply for the COVID-19 Child Benefit. We will provide details on how to apply soon.

Updated Screening Protocols for Schools/Childcare

  • Ontario has amended the COVID-19 School and child care screening guidance on the advice of our Chief Medical Officer of Health to provide information that will help parents determine when it is most appropriate for students, children and their families to seek a test for COVID-19.
