BC Early Childhood Tax Benefit - Good news for families needing daycare!

April 02, 2014

In 2015, the BC government is introducing the new BC Early Childhood Tax Benefit to improve the affordability of child care and assist families with the cost of raising young children.

The BC Early Childhood Tax Benefit, which is part of the Province’s Early Years Strategy, is a tax-free monthly payment of up to a maximum of $55 per month – or $660 dollars per year – for each child under the age of six.

This is great news for families needing daycare! Bankhead's Out of School Care program is accepting registration for the upcoming new school year.
