Case Data and Trends
Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) provides several programs and services to support parents with a variety of quality child care options and to assist parents and caregivers with the costs associated with child care.
The above table compares the average monthly CCOF contracted child care spaces with the child population. While there are CCOF contracted child care spaces for 18.4% of the 0 to 12 population, not all children may need a child care space. Some families may choose to use unlicensed child care or family options to provide care for their children. A child care space may also be utilized by more than one child (at different times of the day).
