Childcare BC improves access to quality, affordable child care
  • Since launching in February 2018, the Childcare BC plan has helped parents save up to $1,600 a month per child, for a total of nearly $510 million, through the Affordable Child Care Benefit and Child Care Fee Reduction Initiative. As a result of these investments, over 32,000 children have received child care for no more than $10 a day.
  • The Province has made significant investments to improve supports to B.C.’s early care and learning professionals, including nearly $16 million to provide more than 6,000 bursaries for students pursuing a career in child care.
  • To date, the Province has invested more than $27 million to provide more than 12,000 early childhood educators with a $1-per-hour wage enhancement, which increased to $2 per hour in April 2020.
