Child Care

What is the Child Care Subsidy Program?

The Child Care Subsidy Program offers financial support to help eligible Alberta families cover their licensed child care costs when parents are working, attending school, looking for work or if they require care because they or their child have a special need. The program is intended for low and middle income families with children 0-12 years old. The program has two distinct income thresholds and rates for different age categories.

What is different for Ukrainian evacuees?

Ukrainian evacuees will not require confirmation of household income.The program will provide the maximum subsidy rate for these families to allow them to find work and settle in Alberta, to a maximum of six months. When the subsidy expires, families can renew through the regular Child Care Subsidy Program and subsidy rates will be based on your household income. Ukrainian families can apply through the adapted program until March 31, 2023.
