A ward’s subsidy target is calculated by dividing the total number of subsidies by the ward’s proportion of Toronto’s low-income children*. For example, If a ward has 5 per cent of Toronto’s low-income children, they are entitled to have 5 per cent of the subsidies. Within each ward, subsidies are then allocated to age groups (infant, toddler, preschool, kindergarten & school age) based on the proportion of children in each group.
*A child is considered low-income if the child’s family is living below Statistics Canada’s Low-Income Measure (LIM) after tax.
In the tabs below, a city ward map for each age group shows how close each ward is to their subsidy target.
The black number indicates the ward and the red values indicate the number of subsidies above/below the target for the ward.
