New Affordable Child Care Benefit launches in BC

A new child care subsidy will help more than 80 thousand families in BC find affordable care.

The new Affordable Child Care Benefit will benefit 4 times as many families as the minimum income threshold to qualify jumps to 111 thousand from the previous 55 thousand.

Families who do qualify for the benefit will also see a 67 percent jump in monthly support.

The new benefit joins the Child Care Fee Reduction Initiative under the province’s new ChildCare BC plan, which will see 1 billion dollars invested in to the industry over the next 3 years.
