Canadian Benefit for Parents of Young Victims of Crime
The death or disappearance of a child is devastating and can leave parents unable to work. If you are a parent or legal guardian who consider to/or have taken time away from work and suffered a loss of income to cope with the death or disappearance of your child or children, you may be eligible for federal income support.
The benefit provides eligible parents with payments of $500 per week, paid every 2 weeks, for a maximum of 35 weeks over a period of 3 years.
You can decide to stop receiving the benefit at any time and restart receipt of the benefit at a later date within the 3 years following the incident.
You can share the weeks with other eligible recipients.
