Fee Subsidy for Licensing Childcare

Fee subsidy is available to provide financial assistance for childcare, to help parents or guardians to balance the demands of career and family while participating in the workforce or pursuing education or training. It can be used to support full and part time childcare in the licensed system as per the Day Nurseries Act (DNA), school based before and after school programs operated by Boards of Education or approved recreation programs that provide care for children six to twelve years of age. To be eligible for child care fee assistance:

family must reside with the District of Cochrane,
Parents must be employed or enrolled in an education or training program, or
must demonstrated child has a special or social need

Applicants must provide the Child Care Coordinator with relevant financial information. The CCC will determine the income of the applicant(s)/recipient(s) in order to accurately assess initial and ongoing eligibility.

The sliding scale Income Test is the basis of financial eligibility. The Adjusted income is as defined by the federal government for purposes of the Canada Child Tax Benefit (section 122.6 of the federal Income Tax Act). Families in receipt of fee subsidy with an adjusted income up to $20,000 are fully subsidized. Parental contribution toward the cost of child care for subsidized families is calculated at 10% of adjusted income over $20,000 plus 20% of adjusted income over $40,000. Families in which there are children with special needs may have their adjusted income reduced by the amount of any expenses related to the disability for which the parent is not reimbursed and for which there are not deductions under the Income Tax Act.
