Olo follow-up care, which is often called the “Olo program”, is offered to pregnant women across Quebec through CLSCs and select community organizations.
Are you expecting a child and looking to join the Olo follow-up care?
The first step to accessing the Olo program is to register your pregnancy on quebec.ca/magrossesse. A staff member from your region will contact you to evaluate your needs and offer services that would benefit you and your baby.
Register at quebec.ca/magrossesse (available in 11 languages)
For more information on the Olo follow-up care, contact your local CLSC.

Once you’re admitted to the program, the follow-up care and coupon distribution (eggs, milk, frozen vegetables and prenatal vitamins) will begin once you’re in your 12th week of pregnancy and will continue for up to 28 weeks. Olo follow-up care may continue after the birth of your child, to support you as you continue to develop healthy lifestyle habits.
Do I qualify for Olo support?
To qualify for the Olo follow-up care, you must be pregnant and have a low income.
However, due to high demand in certain areas, establishments may add additional criteria. Ask for more information from your CLSC.
What can I do if I don’t qualify?
Fondation Olo cannot intervene in the eligibility decisions made by health establishments. Be sure to ask the Olo coordinator questions to understand why you are not eligible.
A few options are available:
- If you live in Montreal, you can contact the Montreal Diet Dispensary, which also provides support;
- Ask the Olo coordinator about the resources available in your community;
- Visit the I am a parent section on our website for useful information that can guide you through your child’s developmental stages, from pregnancy to age 2;
- View Other Resources to find organizations that help families across Quebec.
