Rates lower in Quebec and Manitoba
P.E.I. parents benefit from some of the lowest rates for child care in the country, according to a new study from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.
The group looked at rates in 28 cities in 2018. The rates in Quebec were by far the lowest, under $200 a month. Winnipeg was next at about $650 for an infant and $450 for a toddler.
Charlottetown was next at $738 for an infant and $608 for a toddler.
Rates were highest in Toronto, more than double the Charlottetown rate.
