Child Care Fee Subsidy Wait List

The City of Hamilton’s Child Care Fee Subsidy wait list recognizes that there are children who require immediate placement; therefore the wait list does not apply to eligible families who meet the following criteria:

  • Families with a child who requires special needs resources
  • Families in high-risk situations
  • Young parents aged 16 to 25 years

Families who do not meet these criteria will be placed on a wait list. Families will be removed from the wait list on a first come first serve basis as funding becomes available.

You can complete the Child Care Subsidy Calculator to confirm if you're eligible to apply.
