Lanark County Childcare Subsidy Waitlist

If child care fee subsidies are not available you will be placed on a fee subsidy wait list. If you require child care services while you are on the wait list, you must make your own private child care arrangements as you will be responsible to pay the child care fee. Inquiries are prioritized and entered in the system by date.


Eligible families will receive assistance as funding becomes available.


All applicants must ensure that they have their most recent Notice of Assessment from Revenue Canada. The application for Child Care Fee Subsidy can not be processed until ALL required information is received


Once Child Care Fee Subsidy has been approved, an approval letter will be mailed outlining the effective date and hours approved. A copy of the letter will be forwarded to the Licensed Child Care Program.


Files are reviewed annually or sooner if there is a change in family circumstances and it is the parent(s) responsibility to advise program staff of changes in contact information, address, income, and/or hours of work or school.


If you would like to be placed on the waitlist please call our office @613-267-4200 ext. 2302.
