Temporary licensed child care services remain in effect to support the COVID-19 pandemic response. All Manitobans returning to work are now eligible to access this system to find a location that meets their needs.

Please visit the Temporary Licensed Child Care Search to find and contact licensed child care providers with vacant spaces. These child care arrangements are temporary.

Use the Online Child Care Registry on this page only if you are seeking longer-term, permanent care.
