My husband will be separating from me in a couple of months. I am unemployed and have two kids both under the age of 6. Is there a single mother's compensation? Especially in my situation where I am unemployed.
1) Child support from your ex. Google "Federal Child Support Guidelines", and ask questions on www.ottawadivorce.com/forum
2) See here for information on tax benefits for parents http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/bnfts/
3) Low-income parents often qualify for subsidized (free or low-cost) daycare spots - though there can be a long wait-list for these.
4) See the Related Questions on this forum e.g. here Benefits available to single-mom with low income, in Canada?
