Excerpted from summary

This summary and research brief provide insight into Alberta's funding changes under the new (2022) Canada-wide federal funding. According to the analysis, although out-of-pocket child care costs under the new system will decrease for all families, child care will remain largely unaffordable for low income families, who will benefit less from the policy changes. The author makes suggestions for options for funding approaches that could ameliorate disadvantaging low income families.
