Looks like Quebecers can expect a cheque from the provincial government just in time for the holiday season.

In a news conference led by Finance Minister Eric Girard, the Legault government will be giving Quebecers cheques of either $400 or $600, depending on their financial status and to those that qualify.

This new initiative is being recognized as a one-time, cost-of-living adjustment that will be sent to roughly 6.5 million Quebecers, and will cost the government about $3.5 billion.

Those that qualify will not need to apply for the money as it will be directly deposited into their bank account.

  • People who earned less than $50,000 in 2021 will receive $600 cheques
  • People who earned between $50,000 and $100,000 in 2021 will receive $400 cheques
