Paratransit Services and Housing Allowance

The types of paratransit services and housing allowance must be recommended by the person responsible for integrating persons with disabilities at your educational institution. They must be used to compensate for your disability.

Paratransit Services

If you are a recipient of the Loans and Bursaries Program, you are entitled to an amount equivalent to the average cost of a public transit pass for transportation.

In the event that your expenses for paratransit services are not fully covered by the Loans and Bursaries Program and you require private paratransit services, you may receive an additional amount from the Allowance for Special Needs Program.

No additional amount is awarded if you live with your parents and can use public paratransit services.

If adequate public paratransit services are not available, you can take a taxi or travel with a private person. However, this expense must be justified by the person responsible for integrating persons with disabilities at your educational institution.

Housing Allowance

If you are required to live near your educational institution, an allowance may be awarded to cover a portion of your housing expenses. When you receive a housing allowance, only public paratransit services may be reimbursed.
