Child Care Subsidy Clients

IESA Section 30
CASS Regulation Section 4  

INTENT 

To ensure Child Care Subsidy clients have appropriate access to Child Support Services (CSS) according to legislative authority, program policy and CSS guiding principles. 

POLICY 

Applicants in receipt of Child Care Subsidy must meet the suitability and eligibility requirements for other Albertans with low income.

The applicant is required to attend court unless the worker knows in advance the matter will be adjourned, e.g. DNA testing. As the Child Support Worker (CSW) cannot confirm the applicant’s current circumstances from Community and Social Services records and as the Director does not have the applicant’s rights to ongoing support, the applicant must be available to confirm their situation to the court.
