A Much Needed Subsidy Raise
For many years the maximum subsidies allowed for families utilizing licensed child care remained stagnant. The rates, despite constant raises to costs of living and minimum wages, did not budge. Now, finally, we are seeing the government acknowledge this unfortunate oversight as a part of their plan to ensure that more families are being helped.
"This is a more equitable distribution of taxpayer dollars as it directs support to lower-income families and children and benefits more Albertans." (2020, Changes to Alberta's child Care System.
