For a Great Start
Requesting to Open a File
To make a request for rapid access to a specialized service for your child and your family, we have to open a file on behalf of your family. To open a file, it is important to fully complete the BQ form and CQ form. Your child may be eligible for a bursary, grant, credit or family allowance. Following receipt of your completed BQ form, we can analyze the family’s resources, and opportunities for your child to receive support from a partner in financial services. The CQ form comprises information on the development and needs of your child.
Once completed, the two forms allow us to:
- confirm the eligibility of your child and family to receive one of our services;
- analyze the file to identify family needs and resources;
- help design a personalized pediatric program, tailored to your needs;
- orient and refer you to one or several experts or partners in your area. When sending these forms, they must be accompanied by the required items mentioned in the form, and an amount of $49 to cover the file opening fee.
Send the forms to the address found in the forms.
Note that we must have the signatures of both the mother and the father of the child to open a file. Upon receipt of the forms and all other required items, we will open the file for your family. Opening a file does not obligate you to continue with our organization’s services.
