5. Financial assistance is granted for 1 year from the date of the order of placement of the child with a view to his adoption. Despite the foregoing, where on that date, the adopting parent receives adoption benefits under the Act respecting parental insurance (chapter A-29.011), the financial assistance payment may, at the parent’s request, begin at the end of the payment of the benefits.
The financial assistance may be renewed for 2 consecutive years. Despite the foregoing, it ceases when the child reaches 18 years of age.
An application for renewal shall be filed by the person who is in the situation described in section 1 with the institution operating the child and youth protection centre within 60 days prior to the date on which financial assistance is to cease.
