Catholic Education Week - May 3-8

posted Apr 30, 2020, 11:29 AM by Holy Trinity Catholic High School

Dear Holy Trinity Parents and Guardians,


Each year, the Catholic community of Ontario engages in a week-long celebration of the unique identity and distinctive contributions of Catholic education during Catholic Education Week

Catholic Education Week celebrates the ongoing gift of publicly-funded  Catholic education. Publicly funded Catholic education has existed in Ontario since 1841 and its graduates have served Ontario and Canada very well. The current generation of students in our publicly funded Catholic schools will serve with the same spirit and generosity as their previous generations.  

This year’s celebration is entitled, “Catholic Education: Igniting Hope and will be celebrated during the week of May 3 – May 8, 2020.  More than 600,000 students in over 1,500 Catholic schools across Ontario normally take part in this special week to celebrate the distinctive contribution their schools make in the lives of our students and the community.  

Sadly, given our current circumstances, all Ottawa Catholic School Board in-person activities have been cancelled, however we would like to take this celebration to a virtual model.  As a Catholic community, we are called to “Ignite Hope” in our community. Each day, we will invite all our families to demonstrate their hope for others and themselves with a message:  

Monday - For the ones we love - send a message of hope to someone in your family

Tuesday - For the ones who teach us - send a message of hope to your educator(s)


Wednesday - For leaders - send a message of hope to a leader in your community/world

(government leaders, school board leaders, your parish priest, Archbishop Prendergast, Pope Francis) 


Thursday - For those in need and those who care for them - send a message of hope to a nursing home, hospital, The Mission, Shepherds of Good Hope, frontline and healthcare workers


Friday - For yourself - send yourself a message of hope - for today and the future 


How do I do this?

  • Write a message of hope
  • Draw a picture
  • Find a symbol or object from nature
  • Witness an act of kindness in your community


Capture by video or photo and send that hope-filled message to your family and those you love!  Be sure to share your message using the hashtag #ocsbHope


We look forward to celebrating Catholic Education Week 2020 this year with your messages and images of Hope in our community!

Navigating Financial Assistance during COVID-19

Special Child tax benefit:

We are providing an extra $300 per child through the Canada Child Benefit (CCB) for 2019-20. This benefit will be delivered as part of the scheduled CCB payment in May.

Who can apply: Parents/guardians of one or more children under the age of 18. Those who already receive the Canada Child Benefit do not need to re-apply.

 

Special Goods and Services Tax credit payment:

We are providing a one-time special payment by early May through the Goods and Services Tax credit for low- and modest-income families. The average additional benefit will be close to $400 for single individuals and close to $600 for couples.

Who can apply: There is no need to apply for this payment. If you are eligible, you will get it automatically.

 

Extra time to file income tax returns:

We are deferring the filing due date for the 2019 tax returns of individuals.

For individuals (other than trusts), the return filing due date will be deferred until June 1, 2020. We will also allow any new income tax balances due, or instalments, to be deferred until after August 31, 2020 without incurring interest or penalties.

 

Mortgage Support:

Canadian banks have committed to work with their customers on a case-by-case basis to find solutions to help them manage hardships caused by COVID-19. Canadians who are impacted by COVID-19 and experiencing financial hardship as a result should contact their financial institution regarding flexibility for a mortgage deferral. This allows flexibility to be available − when needed − to those who need it the most.

The new Canada Emergency Response Benefit:

We will provide a taxable benefit of $2,000 a month for up to 4 months

Who can apply: workers who must stop working due to COVID19 and do not have access to paid leave or other income support; workers who are sick, quarantined, or taking care of someone who is sick with COVID-19; working parents who must stay home without pay to care for children that are sick or need additional care because of school and daycare closures;

workers who still have their employment but are not being paid because there is currently not sufficient work and their employer has asked them not to come to work; wage earners and self-employed individuals, including contract workers, who would not otherwise be eligible for Employment Insurance.

When: The Canada Emergency Response Benefit will be accessible through a secure web portal starting in early April. Applicants will also be able to apply via an automated telephone line or via a toll-free number.

 

Employment Insurance (EI):

If you were recently laid off or have reduced hours and qualify for Employment Insurance benefits, you can submit your request for EI today.

Apply: https://www.canada.ca/en/services/benefits/ei/ei-regular-benefit/apply.html

 

Improved access to Employment Insurance sickness benefits:
