Budget: 6.4 M Quebecers will receive $500
Quebec Minister of Finance, Eric Girard.
Quebec will pay $500 to citizens who earn $100,000 or less to help them cope with the rising cost of living. This represents approximately 6.4 million Quebecers.
The amount will be paid per individual, which means that a couple can pocket $1000. On a large scale, that's $3.2 billion in taxpayers' pockets.
The cost of living is increasing significantly due to the pandemic and the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
