The Ontario provides financial support to families with young learners to help with additional costs during the Child Benefit pandemic.
Starting on April 26, the provincial government will begin issuing payments of:
- $400 for each child or youth up to Grade 12
- $500 for each child or youth up to age 21 with special needs
If you received a payment through the Support for Learners program, you do not need to apply for this additional payment.
If you missed applying for the Support for Learners program, you will have the opportunity to apply. Applications will open from May 3, 2021 to May 17, 2021.
