Have You Been Refused Access to Child Care?


No one should be refused access to child care because of special needs or subsidy. You have the right to access child care without discrimination. Licensed child care providers who have a Fee Subsidy and Funding Agreement with the Region of Peel are required to:

•   Offer space to families in receipt of fee subsidy, if spots are available

•   Support children with special needs through Peel Inclusion Resource Services (PIRS), based on capacity

If you believe you have been denied access to child care because of special needs or subsidy, please contact the child care provider first so they have the opportunity to respond to your concern.

If the concern cannot be resolved by working with the provider, you may submit a complaint via the following link
