Children's Services - Fee Subsidy

The city of Toronto offers a Child Care Fee Subsidy to help families with the cost of licensed child care. There is a waitlist for fee subsidy, so it is recommended that you apply as soon as possible. You can apply as soon as you know you are pregnant or expecting a child through adoption. PCH holds a purchase of service agreement with Toronto Children's Services so that we can provide families with subsidized childcare.
