How much pay during parental leave?

If you want to take parental leave and are wondering about your pay during this period, here's what you need to know:

  • During parental leave, your employer does not have to pay you any salary, except for certain provisions of the agreement.
  • Rest assured, you are entitled to financial assistance from your Caisse d'Allocations Familiales: the shared child-rearing benefit (PreParE).
  • The amount of this benefit varies according to the type of parental leave (part-time, full-time or half-time) and the number of dependent children.
  • You will also receive a basic allowance for each dependent child under the age of 3.
