DAILY CHILDCARE COST

KNOW THE NET DAILY COST OF CHILDCARE SERVICES

The calculator provides a comparison of the daily rate (including Québec and federal tax assistance) for a subsidized and a non-subsidized childcare service.

Subsidized childcare service

The daily contribution to a subsidized childcare service is indexed annually on January 1.

All parents pay a single reduced rate of $8.50 in 2021.

Non-subsidized childcare service

Parents whose children attend a non-subsidized childcare service are entitled to a refundable tax credit for childcare expenses. This credit corresponds to a percentage that varies from 75% to 26% of eligible childcare expenses paid, depending on family income.

Caution

The calculator enables you to estimate the assistance to which you may be entitled, and your additional contribution for childcare expenses. Calculations are based on certain assumptions intended to reflect the most common situations. The calculator is meant to provide only an estimate. The exact amounts will be determined when you file your income tax return, on the basis of the specific characteristics of each measure and according to the particular situation of your household.
