Employment income now EXEMPT from AYA

Friday, August 12, 2022

Earlier this year the province announced it's investing $35 million over the next 3 years into programs and services for young adults from government care to better support them as they transition into adulthood.
A part of this commitment includes the introduction of a no-limit earnings or income exemption in 2022, so that young adults will not see a reduction in their AYA monthly funding due to employment income.

Effective immediately (August 2022), a young adult’s income from employment, including self-employment and wage replacement programs, such as Employment Insurance (EI) and Workers Compensation Board (WCB), will be exempt from consideration when determining the level of funding they will receive through AYA. 

This means you can work while on an AYA and not have money taken off of your AYA cheque!
