Transportation Allowance

As of today, sponsors should provide the transportation allowance to each adult, including seniors, as per the rate of public transit for adults and seniors in their community of settlement, or a minimum of $75/month, whichever is greater. In communities where there is no public transit, a flat transportation rate of $75 should be provided.

Updates to the Minimum Financial Support Calculator

The online calculator is now updated with the latest RAP rates and incorporates the new rules on transportation allowances  Go to these links below to use the calculator:
