The City of Ottawa’s Child Care Registry and Waitlist.
Children aged 18 months or less.
Children aged 31 to 44 months.

Children approved for fee subsidy on CCRAW
Indicates the number of children on the CCRAW, on the specified date, who have been approved by the City of Ottawa for a child care fee subsidy
Children identified as aboriginal on CCRAW
applies to children whose parent has indicated upon registration on the CCRAW that they are a(n) First Nation/Inuit/Métis family
Agencies report their vacancies (number of non-occupied spaces) every month on the CCRAW. The City analyses and reports the information by ward and by programtwice per year. Rather than showing the number of vacant spaces on a given day, we display the relative vacancy (the amount of vacant spaces per ward relative to the other wards).
What an N/A score means:
A ward in which none of the agencies offer spaces for any given program (eg; no infants) would warrant a score of N/A.
