“We want something simple inspired by family subsidies,” said Monique Chow, the official opposition spokeswoman for seniors and caregivers.

A maximum of $ 2,000 will be paid directly via Retraite Québec on a quarterly or monthly basis. We give $ 2,000 to people who earn $ 50,000. Amounts vary for older earners. It said in a statement that people would be free to use the amount of their choice.
