The provincial government announced interim changes to the child care subsidy on October 25, 2022. 

Subsidies are available for eligible families to offset the cost of child care services. 

Eligible families can apply for child care subsidies if they have children age 0 to Grade 6 enrolled in a:

  • licensed facility-based program (daycare, out-of-school care and preschool)

  • family day home program overseen by a licensed family day home agency

  • group family child care centre

Rates are based on the child's age, family income, and child care program.
