On March 28th 2022, the Provincial and Federal governments announced an agreement to fund licensed childcare with a goal of reducing fees to an average of $10/day per child by 2025 under the Canada Wide Early Learning and Childcare program (CWELCC). The key objectives of this program are to lower childcare fees for eligible children, improve educator wages and increase access to quality childcare programs.
The CWELCC program provides federal funding for childcare operators to provide a 25% fee reduction retroactive to April 1, 2022, building to a 50% reduction in average parent costs by the end of calendar year 2022 and reaching an average fee of $10 a day by 2025-26 for licensed child care spaces.
We anticipate a large demand for child care due to the reduced child care fees. If you are interested in child care in 2023 or beyond, we suggest you secure a future spot as soon as possible. With the CWELCC discounts in place, we anticipate demand will be greater than the number of spaces we have available.
Parents or guardians of children under the age of six do not have to apply to receive a child care fee reduction. All families are automatically enrolled in the program if they fulfill the eligibility criteria.
You are eligible for reduced fees if:
You pay more than $12 per day for child care and your child:
