The Québec Parental Insurance Plan (QPIP) improves support for new parents by taking into account the changing realities of the labour market and the need to balance work and family obligations. For more information or to submit an online benefit application, visit the QPIP website .
The Québec Parental Insurance Plan has three main objectives:
The Québec Parental Insurance Plan is open to both salaried and self-employed workers and offers maternity, paternity, parental, and adoption benefits. This generous plan offers a benefit rate of up to 75% of a recipient’s average weekly income. There are two benefit payment options to give parents greater flexibility. For more information consult the QPIP website .
The Québec Parental Insurance Plan does not just benefit new parents, but Québec society as a whole. With its aging population, Québec will need the help of each and every citizen to meet future challenges. As such, this measure sends a clear message about the importance the government and society as a whole place on the well-being of Québec families, the key role of new generations in contributing to Québec’s economic prosperity, and the need for intergenerational solidarity.Last update: 2009-10-06
