Your daycare cost per day
(Updated Fall 2013)

A major improvement to the refundable tax credit for child care expenses was announced in the 2009-2010 Budget. Under this measure, the net cost per day of a non-subsidized space in a private daycare service ($25) becomes comparable to the net cost of a reduced-contribution space ($7) in a subsidized daycare service, up to family income of about $125 000.

Try out the calculator and see what your net cost of daycare expenses would be depending on your situation, gross cost of daycare and family income.
