You also need to contact BC Housing IMMEDIATELY and get on their lists ASAP. You can get a subsidy until you can get into housing. Your rent will be adjusted depending on your income.
don;t forget to use www.metrovancouver.org
a much better low-income solution to housing for families, i have worked with both organizations and mv is waaaaaaay better and they both do the same thing, but still apply for bchsg as well.
Also use http://www.servicecanada.gc.ca/eng/a...es/index.shtml
and don;t forget that even if you have a job the gov't (welfare) will subsidize a portion of the costs for daycare/preschool (based on income, though if you make more than the threshold you're SOL) though this may fall under child tax benefit i think
and one question, where's the dickhead???? cuz seriously the RS beatdown crew could use some action, deadbeat dickheads beware!
CONGRATS and good luck to you (or whoever is the mom-to-be) don't be afraid to ask in here for help
