Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care Agreement 

Recently, the federal and provincial governments entered into the Canada-Wide Early Years and Child Care Agreement to make child care more affordable for families.   

This is very good news for families with children under 6 years of age in a participating licensed child care. The agreement promises a fee reduction of 25% as of April 1 with a further 25% fee reduction by the end of 2022.  

The County of Middlesex is creating an application process for licensed child care operators who are interested in participating in the Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care Agreement.  If your licensed child care provider applies for the Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care agreement and is approved, they will let you know.  

The application and approval process for child care providers is expected to take a few months to complete. For families at participating child cares, fee refunds will be issued retroactive to April 1, 2022. We thank you for your understanding. 

If your licensed child care provider chooses not to participate in the agreement, they must let you know.
