News Funding now available for families in Ontario to pay for new education-related expenses SHARE ON: Casey Kenny, staff Monday, Nov. 30th, 2020 (Image supplied by CPAC). Funding is now available for families in Ontario to pay for new education-related expenses. Direct one-time payments are available through the new Support for Learners program to help offset additional learning costs. The funding is available whether children attend school in person, online or a mix of both. It means $200 for each child aged 0 to 12 or $250 if their child or youth is aged 0 to 21 with special needs. The money also helps with additional childcare costs, whether the child is in child care or at home. You can click here to apply.
