On January 1, 2018 the Fair Workplace Better Jobs Act, 2017 came into effect. The Ministry of Education provided funding to Consolidated Municipal Service Managers (CMSMs) to support licensed child care operators with employees earning less than $14 an hour (excluding wage enhancement), as of December 31, 2017. Funding may not be used to support wages above $14 per hour in 2018.

To apply for the funding, operators must complete the Fee Stabilization Funding Application form. 

The application was emailed to all operators on Friday January 26, 2018 with a deadline of February 23, 2018.
