Financial Assistance

Canada’s Universal Child Care Plan provides families with resources to help balance work and family as they see fit — regardless of where they live, whatever their circumstances or preferences.

The Universal Child Care Benefit provides financial assistance to Canadian families with young children. Parents receive $100 a month — up to $1,200 a year — for each child under six years of age.
