Articles and reports: 36-28-0001202300700001

Description: Although several national surveys have collected information on child care expenses from the parent perspective, information on the amount parents pay out of pocket per child has been limited. More recent information is necessary given the parameters of the Multilateral Early Learning and Child Care Framework (Employment and Social Development Canada, 2017) to work towards a shared vision of high-quality, accessible, flexible, inclusive and affordable child care in Canada. This study provides recent estimates of how much parents in Canada report paying for their 0- to 5-year-old child’s main child care arrangement in early 2022.
