Parents who live in Argenteuil will be getting an annual amount of $100 for every child aged four to six, to assist parents with the cost of school supplies. The announcement was made by the finance minister, Carlos J. Leitão, during a recent economic update.

For the 2017-2018 school year, the amount will be paid at the end of January 2018 for families with direct deposit and in February 2018 for families who receive payment by cheque.
