Province moves toward universal child care
VICTORIA (CP) — Child care in British Columbia will soon cost as little as $200 a month for some parents in the province.
Children’s Minister Katrine Conroy says the $10-a-day plan is a prototype and will start at 53 day cares around B.C. She says in a statement the project
looks to become a model for the New Democrat government’s 10-year plan for affordable, quality child care. The $60 million project is part of the Early Learning and Child Care Agreement the province has with the federal government and will benefit about 2,500 children.
