CUPW Child Care Fund
Children playing at a table with blocks while a care giver gives encouragement.

CUPW is one of a very few unions that has negotiated a Child Care Fund to help its members with their child care needs. And we use a unique and progressive approach. Today the Child Care Fund supports eight child care projects in different regions of the country and two national projects to support members who have children or adult sons and daughters with disabilities.

 

Provides help to the families of children (0 to 18 years) with special needs or disabilities.

  • Financial help is provided to reduce the higher cost of appropriate child care and other related services.
  • Personal support by phone from a Special Needs Advisor

If you have a child with special needs, or would like more information contact the Special Needs project at:

Toll-free phone number: 1-800-840-5465
E-mail: info@specialneedsproject.ca

Provides help to the families of adult children (18 and over) with disabilities.

  • Special Needs Advisor familiar with resources and services for adults in each province
  • Funding for members whose adult children are dependent on their parents for care. Use of funds may include additional expenses such as respite, supervision of adult child, life skills training, transportation, tutoring and uninsured heath expenses.

If you have an adult son or daughter with special needs or a disability, or would like more information contact the Moving On project at:

In addition to our two large national projects for members who have children with special needs or disabilities, the CUPW Child Care Fund works with eight community-based child care partners across Canada and Québec to support CUPW parents with children aged 0 to 12. Working with community partners means the union can help its members balance work and family responsibilities by supporting access to high-quality, regulated child care.
