On March 28, 2022, the Ontario and Federal governments announced the signing of a Canada-wide Early Learning and Child Care (CWELCC) agreement. The CWELCC agreement outlines that Ontario families with children five years old and younger, participating licensed child care programs such as the Waterloo Region District School Boards Extended Day Program will see the following impact on their childcare fees over the next 2 years:

  •  September to December 2022 fees will be reduced, up to 25 per cent;·          
  • Before Care Rate $12
  • After Care Rate $12
  • Combined Before & After Care Rate $19.98
  •  Families receiving financial assistance to help with child care fees through the Region on Waterloo’s subsidy program will also receive a 25 per cent reduction to their eligible parent contribution amounts and will be billed the reduced rate.
  • January to June 2023- Parents will see a further reduction in fees, resulting in an average reduction of 50 percent from rates before CWELCC. 
  • September 2024 to September 2025- Families will see further reductions in fees, culminating in an average of $10-a-day child care by September 2025.
