Family Caregiver Benefit for Children

As of December 3, 2017, Employment Insurance special benefits for Parents of Critically Ill Children (PCIC) have been replaced by the Family Caregiver Benefit for Children.

The Family Caregiver Benefit for Children (the Benefit) allows eligible caregivers to receive up to 35 weeks of financial assistance to provide care or support to a critically ill or injured child. Caregivers must be family members or someone who is considered to be like family to the child needing care or support.
