Quebec wants to promote family-work balance for parents of disabled students –

To support organizations that offer supervision services to disabled high school students, the Government of Quebec is providing financial assistance of $ 1,503,684 which will allow the implementation of 40 projects. These subsidies are paid under the Financial Support Program for Supervision Services for Disabled Students aged 12 to 21.

“The funds granted support the many organizations that offer essential monitoring services to parents of disabled students, which will allow them to pursue their career objective while their children can continue to thrive in supervised and caring environments” , indicates the Minister of the Family Mathieu Lacombe.

It should be noted that the primary objective of the program is to offer, in a safe and adapted environment, supervision services for handicapped students who attend high school and who cannot remain alone at home. This program is in line with the guidelines of the Ministry of the Family concerning family-work reconciliation. It aims to provide an appropriate response to the diverse needs of families, including those with a disabled child, as well as to offer parents favorable conditions for taking up a job or continuing their studies.

You can consult all the supported projects on the Ministry’s website.
