The Social and Housing Services Department delivers programs and services to residents of the City of Cornwall and the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry. The department encompasses the following divisions: Child Care, Ontario Works and Social Housing. The Child Care Division plans and delivers quality child care programs and manages the Fee Subsidy Program.  

The City directly operates the Licensed Home Child Care Program and the Richelieu Day Care Centre. The City also purchases services with several licensed child care centres throughout the City of Cornwall and the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry.

Whether you need child care because you are working, attending school, training or participating in upgrading skill courses, a licensed child care setting is a great place for your child to learn, to play and to grow.

You, the parent, have the choice of the type of care you would like for your child. You have the option to secure a place in a licensed child care centre or with a home child care provider through our licensed home child care program.
