In order to better meet the child care needs of families, under Budget 2018, the Province of British Columbia announced expanded investment in the child care sector totalling $1 billion over three years. This includes $237 million to improve access to child care, including funding the creation of 22,000 new licensed child care spaces.

For all funded projects, it is expected that in-person activities, meetings or events meet physical distancing and other public health guidance in relation to COVID-19.  Extensions to project end dates and final report deadlines are available for any approved project impacted by COVID-19.
