More than $800,000 in child care program funding will be cut effective Jan. 1, 2015, resulting in cuts that will affect the city’s most vulnerable. The new funding formula is based on a number of variables, including the number of children within various catchment areas as well as other factors.
Subsidized child care spaces will be reduced as a result of cuts from provincial funding formula. City council will need to decide later this year if it still wants to run child day care operations.
