The Ministry of Social Services issues Requisitions for Goods and Services vouchers to citizens to help with the purchase of goods and services.

Requisition Vouchers

Foster families may receive requisition forms (vouchers) for immediate purchases children or youth need when coming into or while in their care. Required items may include clothing, diapers, formula, car seats or other special needs requests that are approved by the child’s Caseworker.

Things to remember when using a Requisition (voucher):

  • Must have photo identification to match the name on the requisition otherwise it will not be accepted
  • The amount purchased (including tax) must not exceed the amount indicated on the requisition
  • Purchases are not subject to the Goods and Services Tax (GST)
  • The requisition is not valid for payment after six months from date of issue
  • Refunds covering the cost of a returned item must be made to the Ministry of Social Services
  • No cash back will be given to the purchaser
