Nearly 130 More Licensed Child Care Centre Spaces Allocated Across Saskatchewan

Released on March 7, 2019

The Government of Saskatchewan announced today that nearly 130 more licensed child care centre spaces have been allocated in Saskatoon, Delisle, Regina, Moose Jaw and Humboldt.

Funding is being provided through the Canada-Saskatchewan Early Learning and Child Care (ELCC) Agreement.

“I am proud of our government’s commitment to providing affordable child care options to families throughout the province,” Deputy Premier and Education Minister Gordon Wyant said.  “We are looking forward to seeing the positive impact of additional child care spaces in these communities.”

“The Government of Canada is committed to helping families access quality early learning and child care so that more children and parents have the support they need,” said Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness.  “Today’s announcement will make life a little bit easier for more parents across Saskatchewan who want to ensure their children are in good hands.”

The spaces are being allocated as follows:

  • YMCA in Saskatoon – 19 spaces
  • Vanscoy and District Early Learning Center Inc. in Delisle - 32 spaces
  • Eastview Daycare Inc. in Regina – 30 spaces
  • Northwest Child Development Centre Inc. in Moose Jaw – 23 spaces
  • Elizabeth Place Inc. in Humboldt – 21 spaces
  • La Cooperative francaise centre educatif Gard ‘Amis in Regina – three spaces
“These new spaces are allowing us to move forward with what will become Delisle’s first licensed child care facility,” Vanscoy and District Early Learning Center Director Tobi Torresan said.  “A child care centre is greatly needed in this growing community, and we are happy to soon be able to provide more supports for our region’s young families.”

Almost 1,300 child care centre spaces have been allocated across Saskatchewan since the ELCC Agreement was signed in March 2018.  With the addition of these spaces, the government will have allocated funding for 7,116 new spaces since 2007 - a 76 per cent increase in the number of spaces in that time.

The Government of Saskatchewan prioritizes allocating new child care spaces in communities where there is both a high need for child care and a higher level of vulnerability, and to organizations that are ready to move forward with centre development.
