Ontario and Canada Boosting Child Care Programs for Ottawa-Area Families

Children and Families to Benefit from More Subsidies, Reduced Waitlists

Ontario and Canada are making it easier for Ottawa-area parents to access early years and child care programming, with support for more child care subsidies and reduced waitlists.

Indira Naidoo-Harris, Minister Responsible for Early Years and Child Care, was joined by Ottawa Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi, Glengarry–Prescott–Russell MP Francis Drouin and Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson at Mothercraft Ottawa Child Care Centre today to announce that significant investments in early learning and child care from the province and the federal government will:


  • Significantly reduce the subsidy waitlist in Ottawa for the 0 to 6 age group, and
  • Increase access and affordability for more than 1,000 children and their families.  


Ontario is helping 100,000 more children aged 0-4 access affordable, quality, and responsive licensed child care in schools, homes, and communities over the next five years. 

Making licensed child care more affordable and more accessible for families is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
