Parents receive an extra $300/child through the CCB to spend on online tutoring

During his daily coronavirus update on Sunday, May 3, 2020, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that in May, through the Canada Child Benefit, parents will receive an extra $300 per child. “For families with two kids, that means an extra $600, for three kids, an extra $900, and so on. This is money for whatever you need, whether it’s online tutoring or groceries.” Trudeau said during his speech as he encouraged kids to keep up with their homework and that “we’re going to get through this together.” (Source: Macleans)

On top of that, online tutoring offers wider tutor and course options, so learners can get access to qualified and experienced tutors and diverse course options that may not be available in their locations.
