Ontario Works Informal Child Care

Financial Assistance is available to Ontario Works recipients for child care that is not regulated or licensed by a government authority and may be provided on an informal basis arranged by the parent with the caregiver.

This funding is for services to children between 6 weeks and 12 years whose parents are participating in employment or employment related activities including educational programs.

Please contact your Ontario Works Caseworker for information about informal Child Care options.
