Grants of $250 per family are available for attendees who wish to bring children with them to the meeting. Attendees are responsible for making their own arrangements for child care. The grants will be given as a reimbursement for expenses. If requests exceed available funding, preference will be given to students and early career attendees who are presenting at the meeting.
For information on what is an allowable expense and how reimbursement is handled, see Guidelines for Reimbursement of Child Care Expenses.
If you have questions about the child care grants, please contact SIAM.
The Tourism Toronto recommends Babysitting Angels and Care.com for attendees interested in child care services. Care.com provides a web-based resource to connect individuals with vetted babysitters and nannies. Attendees are responsible for making their own child care arrangements.
