Early Childhood Educators Wage Enhancement

For the 2017 year, the Government of Ontario has implemented a wage enhancement of $2 per hour for eligible child care workers in the licensed child care sector.  In addition, the Home Child Care Enhancement Grant (HCCEG) will support an increase of up to $20 per day in 2017 for licensed home child care providers. 

The Ministry of Education is working with its municipal partners to provide this wage enhancement to eligible front-line child care staff.
