As of March 28, 2022, Ontario signed onto the Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care (CWELCC) Agreement, which aims to reduce child care fees for families. Eligible child care fee refunds for families whose child care operator has opted into the program will be retroactive to April 1, 2022.

A Child Care Fee Subsidy helps a family with the cost of licensed child care and school board operated Extended Day Programs. There is a waitlist, so apply as soon as possible. You can apply for a fee subsidy as soon as you know you are pregnant or expecting a child through adoption.

Child Care Fee Subsidy Office Locations are closed until further notice. In-person meetings are available by appointment by calling 416-392-5437 or contacting your Case Worker. Effective January 2021, our Central office at 700 Lawrence Ave West, Suite 330, is permanently closed.
