A Child Care Subsidy (CCS) is a monthly subsidy that helps Saskatchewan families meet the costs of licensed child care. Subsidies are provided directly to child care facilities to reduce the fees charged to eligible parents. Subsidies vary on a sliding scale with income — the lower the income, the higher the subsidy.

To be eligible for a child care subsidy, individuals must:

  • have lawful custody of a child or children under the age of 13 years who receive care in a licensed facility
  • be Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada
  • be residents of Saskatchewan
  • have a valid reason for care. Valid reasons for care include: employment or self-employment, attendance at an educational institution, looking for work, involvement in an approved pre-employment program, or special medical or social needs.

NOTE: Saskatchewan residents who use an approved child care service in Lloydminster, Alberta may be eligible for the monthly Saskatchewan CCS Program.

If you have questions about the CCS Program you can call the Client Service Centre toll free at 1-800-667-7155. More information is also available in the following links below.
