WELCOME TO FREE TO GROW
We are accepting applications again however, due to the financial situation we are currently facing, we are reducing the maximum amount of funding we can provide per child to $250 until further notice. Please note: funding is not guaranteed - it is dependent on our fundraising efforts.
Step 1: Check to see if you are eligible for funding. Look at the chart below to see if your family income (we look at the tax line 236) is below the amount shown for your family size.
Statistics Canada Low-Income Cut-Off Scale Before Tax Table (based on 2019 LICO)
|Family Size||Family Income (based on Line 236)|
|1 person (e.g. independent youth)||$22,759|
|2 people (e.g. parent + 1 child)||$28,332|
|7 or more people||$60,227|
Step 2: If you think you are eligible, you can begin the application process below by clicking Agree to the Terms and Conditions and then either logging into your existing account or registering for a new account (if you’ve never applied before).
You will need to have documents to show your family size and income. Click here to see what document(s) we will want to see.
