Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care (CWELCC) Program

On March 28, 2022, Ontario reached a $13.2 billion agreement with the federal government on funding for the Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care (CWELCC) program. The new program will lower child care costs and improve access, and quality across Ontario’s child care and early years sector. Fee reductions only apply to infant, toddler, preschool and kindergarten programs. School-age before/after school program do not qualify for fee reductions.

For more information about the CWELCC and the reduction of parent fees and rebates please see the Region’s website.
