To qualify for fee subsidy you must demonstrate a financial need and a reason for child care. Families must have an up-to-date copy of the Notice of Assessment or Child Care Tax Benefit Notice. An income test application will be completed by a Children’s Services Worker using a copy of your tax information (line 236) and signing the Fee Subsidy Agreement. The application will determine your portion of child care cost.
It is your responsibility to immediately advise your Children’s Services Worker if there are any changes in your situation to continue receiving fee subsidy.
You must be a resident of Grey County.
You and your spouse/partner (if applicable) must file an income tax return every year to continue being eligible for subsidy. The most current income tax information is required to maintain your subsidy.
Parent(s) must be working, attending school, training or skill upgrading courses. If parents are attending school, a course schedule is required to verify the approved days of care.
Written referrals from Public Health, Keystone Child, Youth & Family Services, Bruce Grey Child and Family Services to support why this service is required.
Annual File Review
At least once a year you will be required to meet with a Children’s Services Worker to update your file with current information and signatures. Your file must be kept up-to-date to be eligible for subsidy. It is important you respond to all correspondence and other request.
