Financial Aid

Child Care Fee Subsidy

A Child Care Fee Subsidy through the City of Toronto helps a family with the cost of licensed child care. Plan to apply for subsidy well in advance of when you will require assistance, as there is a wait list for this funding.  A family who needs help with the cost of licensed child care for their children (up to 12 years old) must meet the following criteria:

  • Your family must live in Toronto or is moving to Toronto.
  • Each parent/guardian is either:  employed; in school or planning to go to school.
  • Each parent/guardian has submitted their most recent Income Tax Return.  If you are a new immigrant to Canada this year or if you are under 18 years of age, you may apply without your most recent Tax Return.
