    Covid 19 financial help (Ontario)

    Hello All. We have just shut down our in home day care for the safety and protection of everyone involved. Question is, does anyone have any idea on financial aid available for childcares closing down because of covid19? We are not registered as a full day care as we did not wish to deal with the extras. We keep our number low and do our taxes as a childcare so it is not an under the table job either. We are in a very bad financial situation so any suggestions/directions will be appreciated. Wishing everyone the best. Keep safe!

    Details haven’t been clarified by Ford yet.
    Apparently there may be money for people who don’t normally qualify for EI, but it was very vague.
    No guarantees on anything or how long it might take to see it.
    I’m not counting on anything.

    On another thread the Ministry has said that the closure does NOT apply to home daycares, so I technically you can stay open. That being said, I would like to know if there's financial assistance for us in case we get the virus.

    Hey all. Hope you are safe. We decided to close the daycare. We have applied today for the CERB. After applying I started to wonder if we are considered to be covered. We closed for obvious safety concerns as well as protecting our own children who have multiple underlying issues. Have you applied for CERB? or are you thinking as a independent home daycare that your not covered? Ty

    Just wondering if daycares that are still open with lost income are eligible for this benefit? Are you open?

    Hey all, I haven't found clear info on whether or not private home daycares were actually eligible for cerb. Even though I did close due to fear of spreading/contracting covid, the government didn't force me to. Next year at tax time they may be asking us to repay it back unfortunately. If anyone has more clarity please share. Tx

    I think financial help sometimes is needed. It's actually very easy to make money. I can tell you how. First you need to look at your strengths what you are capable of. If you want to work from home then this site see here in Singapore will help you, which helps to do business with accounting ecommerce . The company is very simple if you understand this matter well. You can try to create your own business, you will not regret it.

    At the beginning of the quarantine, I also had big problems with finances and for a long time, I was looking for a good job for myself to cover all the expenses of the family. I was lucky to find a good job in my speciality.

    The quarantine was too heavy. I have two children, I got fired from my job and depression started to develop. My friend advised me to make money in an online casino because he saw in what position I was. I went to https://onlinecasinos367.com/, read the information and started learning. This is the best decision in the last few years of my life. Now I definitely won't need office work anytime soon.

A few tips...

Always ensure that your child receives quality care by taking the time to investigate the provider and by asking for references! We simply cannot verify the claims of every daycare provider.
