Support for Parents

The government has launched Support for Parents, an initiative that will provide financial support to parents of eligible children for each day of school that is missed on account of the labour disruption. Parents with children attending school-based child care centres that are closed on account of the labour disruption will also be eligible to receive support.  Parents will be able, and strongly encouraged, to submit applications via an online system. 

If you have questions about this financial support and to submit an online application, please visit the Ministry’s website at www.Ontario.ca/SupportForParents or the dedicated Support for Parents Helpline at 888-444-3770.
