2020 March Break Reimbursement Fund – Application Ontario ONLY

We been applying for both March break and summer for the past 2 years. Unfortunately we never get selected. However I still apply and keep my fingers and toes crossed. Below is the information for Canadians who live in Ontario. There is also a link to the application directly. After you apply you get an email confirmation so look out for that. Good luck.

The 2020 March Break Reimbursement Fund is available to Ontario families of children or youth with ASD who retain the services of a one-to-one support worker OR who has paid for their child to attend a 2020 March break camp or program, but not both.
