Child care subsidy

Help for families with the cost of licensed child care.

We recommend applying for a subsidy 4 weeks before you need child care.

Families will soon pay less for child care

Child care subsidy will continue in the Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care system.

All providers can participate in the early learning and child care system and if your provider applies to participate and is approved, your child care fees will be reduced. Learn more about what this means for your family.
