    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.

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.
