Parental leave for twins

If you are expecting twins, find out what the law says about parental leave for multiple births.

  • If you give birth to two babies, you are entitled to take up to 12 months of parental leave to care for them.

  • The father can also apply to his employer, as well as the adoptive parents if the children are under 16 years old.

  • This period can be renewed twice until the children enter kindergarten.
  • If you wish to benefit from the "PréParE" financial aid, ask your Caisse d'Allocations Familiales about the conditions of eligibility.
