Ontario Child Care Tax Credit

Notice: Hamilton Child Care Centres

Updated September 11, 2020
The City and Hamilton Public Health Services are working with local licensed child care centre operators to ensure a gradual and safe reopening of these centres in the city. View the latest information on the reopening of child care centres.

The new Ontario Childcare Tax Credit will put more money in the pockets of families and provide the flexibility they need to choose the child care options that work best for them.

Eligible families can claim up to 75% of their eligible child care expenses, including services provided by child care centres, homes and camps.

You will be able to claim this tax credit when you file your 2019 personal income tax return in 2020.
