If you need a snowsuit for your child, there are three steps:

If you are a resident of Gatineau

Currently, Gatineau families must contact 819-665-1442 to register for a snowsuit. You will be advised of your distribution location upon registration. Please visit for more information.



We serve newborns to age 15 living in Ottawa. All families must bring their Child Tax Credit (previous year). A piece of identification indicating the child’s date of birth is required for all qualifying children.  Identification showing the family’s city of residence must also be provided.

If you are on Ontario Works or ODSP

Please bring your current or past month’s Ontario Works Statement of Assistance.

If you are low income

To determine if you are considered “low income” click here. Bring either your Child Tax Benefit or GST notice from the previous year. This notice will show the family net income, your marital status, and it will list your children by their first name and show their month and year of birth. This notice is mailed to you in July if you have filed your income tax prior to April 30.

If you have recently immigrated to Canada

Provide your date of arrival and proof of financial status.
