 About Support for Learners

You can get financial support to help with additional costs during the 2020-2021 school year due to COVID-19.

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

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

For students attending First Nations schools, simply select:

Then select drop down option:

“My child is attending a First Nation operated or federally-operated school”
