Support for Families Initiative

Premier Doug Ford and Education Minister Stephen Lecce announced new financial support for families. The support for families initiative is a one-time payment: $200 for each child up to 12 years of age; and $250 per child up to 21 years of age with special needs.

Make sure you have the information ready before applying:

- Banking information - Child’s Birth date - The name of school (public or private) - Parent’s email

Parents who received financial support during the school strikes a few months ago, do not need to fill out the direct deposit information; the government already has it. If you did not, parents are required to provide their banking information on this website.

If you have any questions, please contact Melissa at or Rosaria at
