ELCC Program 2022 – Subsidies for families
Starting in January 2022, children in daycares are subsidized by the government according to the federal-provincial agreement to reduce childcare fees to 10$/day by 2026.
Two subsidies are currently available: the subsidy for operators and the subsidy for families. The operators’ subsidy is automatically applied without parents’ involvement. However, to receive the subsidy for families, the family must apply for it.
ATTENTION, in your application, you must enter the official program name of your child’s program as well as its program number:
OFFICIAL PROGRAM NAME : Centre d’expérience Prescolaire #2
PROGRAM NUMBER : 80000354
***It is very important to enter the correct information for each child, otherwise your child will not be declared in the correct program and adjustments will have to be made, which may prolong the process.***
To apply and for more information on how the subsidy works, please consult the Government of Alberta’s website by clicking on the button below.
