Government of Saskatchewan Announces Allocation of More than 500 Child Care Spaces

Released on June 17, 2014

Today at Awasis Child Care Co-op Ltd. in Regina, Education Minister Don Morgan announced that more than 500 new spaces are being allocated in eleven communities across Saskatchewan.  

“Our government recognizes that access to high quality child care is a necessity for many of our citizens,” Morgan said.  “These new spaces will alleviate some of the pressures in our growing communities and allow parents to work, return to work, or study after starting a family.”

Awasis Child Care Co-op Ltd. will receive funding for 101 new child care spaces; 50 in White City and 51 in Regina.  

“We are thrilled with the new child care spaces we have received,” Awasis Child Care Co-op Ltd. Executive Director Sheila Pelletier said.  “We would like to thank the Minister of Education for his continued support in allowing our organization to be progressive in providing quality child care to the children and families of Regina and surrounding communities.”

Communities receiving spaces include Christopher Lake, Lumsden, Prince Albert, Regina, Sandy Bay, Saskatoon, St. Isodore-de-Bellevue, Swift Current, Wakaw, Warman and White City.

The Government of Saskatchewan has invested $2.2 million in the 2014-15 Budget for the development of more than 500 additional child care spaces.  

Since November 2007, the Government of Saskatchewan has made a record investment in licensed child care, allocating funding for 4,935 new child care spaces to communities across the province.  This year’s allocation raises the number of funded licensed child care spaces in Saskatchewan to more than 14,200, an increase of 53 per cent in the last seven years.
