Who can apply
We use the Statistics Canada low income cut-offs to determine who is eligible for fee assistance.
Each eligible family member on your application will receive a non-refundable credit of $275 that’s valid for one year. You can apply and receive your credit once per year. Applications for anyone under 18 years old need to be filled out and signed by their parent or guardian.
You are not eligible for fee assistance if you are:
- A full-time college or university student with no children
- Already receiving another City fee assistance program (such as the Jerry Love Children’s Fund)
