A handicapped child

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

  • Child assistance payments

    Financial assistance is paid to all eligible families that have dependent children under 18 years of age living with them in Québec.

Additional assistance for a handicapped child

  • The supplement for handicapped children

    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.
  • The supplement for handicapped children with exceptional care needs

    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.
