Programs are funded in many different ways. Some are funded by the Province, some by boards of education, and some by municipalities, United Way, church groups, orĀ  other organizations. Almost all programs struggle financially, and most engage in local fundraising activities. Through its recently-announced intention to create a system of family support services under the name EarlyON Child and Family Centres, the Province is seeking to develop a new fundingĀ  model that will be more equitable and applied consistently across Ontario.
