Provincial commission to look at universal early child care
from Winnipeg Free Press
The Manitoba government is establishing a commission to recommend ways to achieve its goal of making early learning and child care universally accessible. Family Services Minister Kerri Irvin-Ross said a consultant will be hired by April 1 to take on the role of commissioner. A 12-person advisory committee has been named to assist the commissioner, who is expected to report his or her findings within a year. The province’s early learning and child care program, established four decades ago, is now challenged by growing demands for what has become an essential service for modern families, advocates say.
