Child Care Subsidy

Easy application

Tax filing not required

The Child Care Subsidy Program provides provincial support to eligible families to help with the cost of care by reducing childcare fees for children from the ages of 12 weeks to 12 years.

Your eligibility depends on various factors including:

  • Your income.
  • The number and age of your children
  • The number of days required for care.
  • The reason for care.

The subsidy eligibility estimator will help you to estimate if you may be eligible for a subsidy, and if so, the amount of subsidy you may be eligible for. Please use the Subsidy Eligibility Estimator before filling out a subsidy application.

  • confirmation of SIN letter
