Even if your period isn't always the most exciting event, you can still take comfort in the fact that it may cost you less. Yes, sustainable hygiene product reimbursement is possible in many places in Quebec. Whether you use sanitary napkins, tampons, cups or menstrual panties during your period, you know it's an extra expense.\nSome cities and boroughs across the province have programs in place to help you cover those necessary costs.\nEditor's Choice: A Group Is Trying To Get Every Single Montrealer To Leave Food Outside On 1 Day This Month\nThese subsidies were put in place to encourage the use of reusable hygiene products and they may even cover other items, such as cloth diapers.\nAt the beginning of 2020, about 15 municipalities in Quebec were reimbursing these environmentally friendly products.\nThis summer, several others joined in the trend. Today, a total of 22 jurisdictions offer some form of this subsidy program.\nThe amount covered varies by territory as does how much you can get reimbursed — it can range from $40 to $100 per person and/or per application.\nHere are the 22 municipalities and boroughs in the province that offer this subsidy:\nCôte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce (Montreal)\n\n\nAhunstic-Cartierville (Montreal)\n\n\nRivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles (Montreal)\n\n\nRosemont–La-Petite-Patrie (Montreal)\n\n\nSud-Ouest (Montreal)\n\n\nBelœil\n\n\nBoisbriand\n\n\nChambly\n\n\nDorval\n\n\nHam-Nord\n\n\nMascouche\n\n\nMatane\n\n\nMRC Marguerite-D'Youville\n\n\nPointe-Claire\n\n\nPrevost\n\n\nRosemère\n\n\nSaint-Hippolyte\n\n\nSaint-Jean-sur-Richelieu\n\n\nSaint-Roch-de-L'Achigan\n\n\nSaguenay\n\n\nSalaberry-de-Valleyfield\n\n\nVaudreuil-Dorion\nIf you reside in one of these places, you should refer to their respective websites for information on the procedures and forms you need to fill out to claim what you're owed.\nIn most cases, proof of residence is required to take advantage of the program.\nBe sure to keep your invoice as proof of purchase, as well.\nView this post on Instagram 🚺POUR FEMMES SEULEMENT!💟 Nous avons maintenant en boutique les sous-vêtements Mme L'Ovary!
