Affordable Child Care Benefit

Changes to the Child Care Fee Reduction Initiative: The ministry is working with child care providers to update Affordable Child Care Benefit plans to reflect the enhanced fee reduction for families. Parents and providers will be contacted if more information is needed.

The Affordable Child Care Benefit is a monthly payment to help eligible families with the cost of child care. Factors like income, family size, and type of care determine how much support families can get. Families need to renew their application every year.

The Affordable Child Care Benefit replaces the Child Care Subsidy as per the Child Care Subsidy Regulation
