Breaking through barriers for workers
who have children with special needs

Welcome to Special Needs and Moving On Projects!

Special Needs & Moving On projectsThe Special Needs and Moving On Projects provide resources and support for workers at the post office whose children have disabilities. The projects are available to members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers and the Union of Postal Communications Employees (Public Service Alliance of Canada). The Special Needs Project is geared to families with young children; the Moving On Project is for adult sons and daughters with special needs. Life is more demanding when you work and have a child with special needs. Learn more about our Special Needs and Moving On projects.


The Supplement for Handicapped Children

the-supplementThe purpose of the supplement for handicapped children is to provide financial assistance for families to help with the care and education of a handicapped child. The physical or mental handicap must significantly limit the child in carrying out daily activities for a period expected to last for at least 1 year.

The supplement for handicapped children is the same, that is, 172 $ a month, for all children who meet the Régie's eligibility criteria, regardless of family income or type of handicap. That amount is not taxable and is indexed in January of each year.
