Child Care Subsidy

Child care subsidy, or financial assistance with the cost of child care, is available to families who are working, training or attending school. The child care subsidy calculator can be used to determine if you may be eligible for child care subsidy.

You must file your taxes on time and have the most recent Notice of Assessment or Canada Child Tax Benefit to apply for child care subsidy.

Exception: Recent immigrants who were not residents of Canada in the previous year and had no Canadian income to report for income tax purposes are not required to have filed an income tax return. Your adjusted income will be considered zero for the first year.

Contact us to ask about child care subsidy. Please note, eligibility for financial assistance is based on your family's income.
