Eligibility

Child care fee subsidies are for parents or guardians who are:

  • working
  • going to school
  • in a training program
  • have a child with special needs

and need help paying for child care for children 12 years of age and under in a licensed child care program.

To qualify, you must also have filed your Federal Tax Return in accordance with Revenue Canada guidelines.

Children with special needs

A Child First is a free program for children 12 years old and under with special needs.

Under the program, children with special needs are given the support they need to take part in community child care programs with other children in their age group. Resource teachers are available to help assess and support children with special needs.

If you are applying for subsidy because you or your child has a special need, please complete the Documentation of Parent/Guardian Special Needs or Documentation of Child Special Needs.
