New child care spaces announced for BC
The BC government has announced new child care spaces throughout the province.
Families in 52 communities throughout BC will benefit from 103 projects that will create more than 3,800 child-care spaces. This $33-million investment is focusing on areas of greatest need, including infant and toddler spaces; spaces on school grounds or co-located in a community hub; inclusive spaces in child-development centres; Indigenous child-care spaces; and employer-based spaces.
More than half of these spaces are being delivered by non-profit organizations, and 20% are from Indigenous child-care providers.
Victoria is receiving a total of $3.7 million for 448 child care spaces.
