Wage Enhancement Funding

Wage Enhancement improves salaries and benefits for child care workers. Funding allows child care providers to increase staff wages while keeping child care affordable for families. 

Wage Enhancement Funding provides funding for a wage increase of up to $2.00 per hour plus up to 17.5 percent benefits to registered early child care educators and other child care program staff working in licensed child care centres and home visitors working in licensed Home child care agencies. The Home Child Care Enhancement Grant provides an increase of up to $20.00 per day for licensed home child care providers contracted with a licensed child care agency.
