Access to childcare

In 2015, 48 percent of families who were income eligible received the Basic Sliding Fee childcare subsidy. The Basic Sliding Fee program helps families pay for child care while they look for work, go to work, or attend training or school to prepare for work.

Many eligible families are not receiving the Basic Sliding Fee childcare subsidy due to a capped funding; were the cap removed, an additional number of families would receive this benefit.
