To receive the supplement for handicapped children or the supplement for handicapped children with exceptional care needs, you must be eligible for child assistance and meet certain requirements.
Financial assistance for all children
Additional assistance for a handicapped child
A supplement of $189 a month paid to families who have a child under age 18 that we have deemed to be handicapped. Its purpose is to provide assistance to families to help with the care and education of a child with a handicap that significantly limits his or her activities for a period expected to last at least one year.
Financial assistance paid for a child who has prolonged mental or physical impairments causing multiple serious handicaps which prevent him or her from carrying out, without assistance, daily activities similar to those expected for a child the same age. The financial assistance will help parents who take on exceptional responsibilities provide special care or ensure a continual presence at the child's side.
For additional information on the eligibility requirements and the application of the supplement for handicapped children with exceptional care needs, see the Ministère des Finances' Information bulletin , published on 22 June 2016. The bulletin provides very specific information.
