Update from the Comox Valley


On January 14, administrators and supervisors of group centres (including school age) are meeting to address the new funding program. One of our multi-licensed child care facilities is losing as much as $25,000 a year.

We have asked administrators to come with specific dollar figures to estimate the loss in our community. We will be discussing the impact on our community, looking at solutions for sustainability and ideas to increase public awareness. We will let you know the outcome of this meeting.

We contacted all child care facilities to ensure that they had received the new operating grant application package from the Ministry and remind them of the deadline. Some had not opened the kit and others didn’t realize there was a deadline. Others had not received the kit at all.

The longer the solidarity line
The shorter the struggle
