Wage Enhancement Application

As the Consolidated Municipal Service Manager, Children & Youth Services is responsible for implementing the Wage Enhancement program in Northumberland County. We are dedicated to supporting operators through the application process. Operators must apply annually to receive this funding. 

The Application Process for 2018 Wage Enhancement is now OPEN.


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 currently earning less than $14 an hour. The objective of the Fee Stabilization Support funding is to increase wages and stabilize licensed child care fees in Ontario.

The Application Process for 2018 Fee Stabilization Support is now OPEN.
