It is aimed at different professionals and various clienteles (teenagers, young adults, members of the entourage).

PETITION TO IMPROVE HOME SUPPORT FOR PARENTS OF SEVERELY DISABLES CHILDREN
In pursuit of efforts to access government subsidies offered to parents of severely disabled children, L’Étoile de Pacho has filed a petition with the Quebec National Assembly asking the government to establish an administrative bridge between the service employment cheque (CES) and the Supplement for handicapped children requiring exceptional care (SEHNSE) so that the assessment of eligibility for programs is carried out in a coordinated manner. and systematic.
Last year’s survey confirmed that several hundred natural families who receive financial assistance through the SEHNSE do not have access to the CES home support hours of respite care, which is essential to avoid parental burnout and promotes their reintegration or job retention. You are invited to sign and share this petition with your entourage and network to increase the number of signatures.
TAX RELIEF FOR BASIC INCOME RECIPIENTS WHO HAVE HAD TO PAY TAXES
During the 2022 tax season, many people now receiving the Basic Income Program (who were formerly in the Social Solidarity Program with the seniority of 66 months in the last 72 months) reported owing money to the Quebec government because of the tax payable.
The Ministère de l’Emploi et de la Solidarité sociale has finally settled the situation for the 2022 taxation year. People who have had to pay taxes unfairly should have received the refund or should receive it shortly. A new notice of assessment should also be issued. The Société québécoise de la déficience intellectuelle (SQDI) continues to work with the government to ensure that this situation does not recur for the 2023 taxation year.
In all cases, the SQDI recommends always paying the amounts of tax owing and remaining a beneficiary of the Basic Income Program, because the benefits are higher than those of the Social Solidarity Program.
