Expanding Licensed Child Care in Ontario Communities

Ministry of Education

Ontario is investing in renovations and additions to create new licensed child care spaces in community centres, Indigenous friendship centres and other community spaces throughout the province. This investment will help bring more than 3,100 new child care spaces to communities in Ontario, giving families more options for high-quality licensed child care.
