City of Ottawa has no plan to spend $3.6 million child care reserve
from The Ottawa Citizen
The city has no plan to spend the $3.6 million it has collected through development charges to build new child care spaces, even though many Ottawa families wait for months to secure a spot in a licensed centre. The money has been accumulating since 2009 and can only be spent on child care centres owned or operated by the city. But because such a venture is not on the horizon, the city has decided to sit on the cash and is also proposing in its updated development charges bylaw to pause any further collection.
