Mothers at Work: The Fiscal Implications of the Ontario Childcare Rebate

January 10, 2019—The Ontario government's proposed childcare rebate will offer working mothers relief and create a windfall of tax revenues for the federal government, according to a new report from the C.D. Howe Institute. In “Mothers at Work: The Fiscal Implications of the Proposed Ontario Childcare Rebate” authors Jacob Kim and Alexandre Laurin find that the proposed program would induce more Ontario mothers to take on employment and thus increasing tax revenues for both the Ontario and federal governments.
