Joining the Olo Program

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 program?

The first step is to make an appointment with the Olo coordinator at your CLSC. This person will meet with you and determine whether you are eligible, based on the criteria in your region.

Contact the Olo coordinator for your area.

Find the contact information for your 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 program, 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.

 

Is the Olo program offered in my area?

The Olo program is offered across Quebec in over 150 establishments, mostly through CLSCs and in certain community organizations. Every year, Fondation Olo reaches 5,000 new pregnant women in need and distributes over 600,000 food vouchers. See Our Impacts to learn more.
