Children Under Six Years: Refugees who arrive with children under the age of six years as of the date of
arrival or who have a baby within their first year in Canada may be issued an additional $50 per month on
top of their normal food and incidental rate. This money is intended to cover the cost of diapers, laundry,
formula and other infant needs.

Maternity Allowance: On receipt of a physician’s letter confirming pregnancy, a one time $150 additional
clothing allowance and $37 per month allowance to assist with special dietary needs may be approved. This
allowance may be issued for a maximum of six months within the entitlement period or until the birth of a
baby, whichever comes first.

Newborn Allowance: About one month prior to the expected due date, the client may be issued $500 to
purchase clothing, furniture, etc. for the baby. This allowance can be issued if the due date (provided in
writing from a physician) is not more than 21 days after the last date of the entitlement period.

School Start-Up Allowance: This allowance of $150 for children between 4-18 years of age is paid to help
defray costs for school supplies, activity fees, gym clothing, etc. It is normally issued on a one-time basis
and should be included in the entitlement payment for the month of August or later during the school year.
However, some families may require this amount twice if the entitlement period covers two school years.

Special Diet Allowance: This allowance is paid to individuals who provide a letter from a physician. The
maximum allowable is $100 per month above the normal food and incidental rate.
