Ontario Education Minister Stephen Lecce announces parents can receive between $200 or $250 per child to help offset the cost of catching up in school after two years of disrupted learning.
Starting Thursday, parents with children up to 18 years old can apply at https://www.ontario.ca/page/catch-up-payments for $200, while parents with school-aged children with special education needs, up to the age of 21, can apply for $250.
However, details about how this lump sum of money would be divided were only recently released.
This is not the first time parents have received payouts from the Ford government. Last year, parents received $400 per child aged 0 to Grade 12 while parents with children who have special needs under the age of 21 received $500.
