SCHOOL

The new challenges we are facing with COVID-19 affect our education at every level. We've put together some info for you whether it’s K-12 or post-secondary, WeGotChu.

 

For those of us who graduate this Spring - congratulations! We know that this isn't how you imagined things would be, but you put in the hard work and achieved something special that can't be taken away.

CONGRATS, new grads!

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.
