A-17 - Act respecting family assistance allowances

Full text
5. Every family is entitled to a monthly allowance, in the amount prescribed by regulation, in respect of each child who is a handicapped child within the meaning of the regulations and in whose respect a family allowance is payable.
To ascertain whether a child is handicapped, the Board may require that the child be examined by the physician or expert it designates. If the family fails to comply with the requirement, the allowance shall not be granted or, if it has already been granted, shall cease to be paid from the month following the month during which the examination should have been made.

5. At the beginning of each year, from January 1 1975, the amount of the allowance contemplated in section 4 must be revalorized in the manner prescribed by virtue of section 119 of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan for the adjustment of the benefits payable under that act but subject to the regulations, so that the amount payable for any month of a subsequent year is equal to the product obtained by multiplying the amount which would otherwise be payable for that month by the ratio that the Pension Index for that subsequent year bears to the Pension Index for the year preceding that subsequent year.
However, for the year 1975, the ratio contemplated in the preceding paragraph shall be that between the Pension Index for that year and the average of the Consumer Price Index for Canada for each month of the twelve-month period ending October 31 1973.
