The Ministry of Education has confirmed they will provide additional Fee Stabilization Support Funding for April to December 2018. This is in addition to the committed funding for January to March 2018.


In October 2017, the Ontario Ministry of Education announced new funding called Fee Stabilization Support Funding. This funding is intended to help child care operators meet the new 2018 minimum wage requirements and avoid increases in child care fees for families. It does not mitigate any other requirements under Bill 148. City Council has approved distribution of Fee Stabilization Support Funding for 2018.

All licensed child care centres and licensed home child care agencies that opened before July 1, 2018 are eligible to receive this funding. For an application, please email

Letters will be sent by email to all applicants confirming if they are approved or ineligible for funding. Fee Stabilization Support Funding will be distributed quarterly to approved applicants. Funding is retroactive to January 1, 2018.
