What is the Support-Payment Collection Program?

The support-payment collection program ensures that the amounts determined by a support judgment are collected and paid.

Support is an amount paid periodically to cover a child's or an ex-spouse's basic needs, such as:

  • food
  • housing
  • heating
  • clothing
  • education

Scope of the support-payment collection program

The support-payment collection program is universal. It applies to all judgments ordinarily handed down in Québec that grant support to a child or an ex-spouse.


  • collect support payments from the person required to pay support (the payer of support);
  • provide the support payments to the person who is entitled to them (the support recipient);
  • index the support amount annually (unless the judgment specifies otherwise).

We do not:

  • determine the amount of support;
  • modify the amount of support;
  • cancel support;
  • change the terms of a judgment.

See the following pages for more information on how support is determined, modified, cancelled or suspended:
