Update to Passport Guidelines from MCCSS
The Ministry of Children, Community, and Social Services (MCCSS) recently released changes to the Passport Program guidelines that came into effect on April 1, 2023. These changes include addressing the temporary list of eligible expenses that were added to the Passport Guidelines in April 2020 to support recipients in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The temporary expansion of eligible expenses will no longer be in effect as of April 1, 2023. Some of the temporary eligible expenses will be permanently integrated into the Passport guidelines, and some expenses will no longer be eligible. The complete Passport Guideline is available at this link: www.ontario.ca/page/passport-program-guidelines.
