A few new things have happened in BC regarding funding for child care programs and services. Click here to read the latest letter from Minister Reid. There are still many concerning things that are happening however. Provincial funding to Westcoast Child Care Resource Centre is being eliminated. While some funding is being restored for CCRR’s, this is still greatly reduced. The Child Care Operating Funding is still being reduced approximately 27% as of July 1, 2007. There is still a funding cap on for any new child care spaces that are developed.
Let the government know that child care is important to BC families.
