INFORMATION ON EMERGENCY CHILD CARE FUNDING
The Provincial government has provided incentive based funding for Childcare providers. Facilities that receive emergency funding cannot penalize parents for withdrawing their children and must guarantee previously enrolled children their childcare space after the pandemic. In addition to that, facilities that choose to close must waive all fees for parents during their closure in order to be eligible for emergency funding.
