Financial Assistance Domestic Help Services (Régie de l’assurance maladie)
The Financial Assistance Program for Domestic Help Services was implemented in the wake of the Summit Conference on the Economy and Employment, held in October 1996, and is designed to help develop the potential of Québec’s social economy sector.
In this regard, the program’s objectives are to help build a strong network of businesses providing domestic help services and to encourage people to use the services offered by these businesses.
The ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (MSSS) is responsible for the program, while the health and social services agencies are in charge of recommending domestic help social economy businesses to the MSSS for recognition. The MSSS has entrusted administration of the program to the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec. To ensure the program’s smooth operation, the Régie has set up the Service de la contribution et de l’aide financières, which processes applications for financial assistance filed by individuals and handles requests for payment submitted by businesses.
