Dear Families and Staff

We received a number of questions regarding the Canada Wide Early Learning and Child Care program email that was sent out on June 24, 2022.

The Board of Directors reservation for not in opting immediately is due in large part to the significant number of unknowns that are left undefined by the

Province throughout the CWELCC contract. Language such as reasonableness,or fair market are being used with no concrete or definitive numbers or

caps provided for salaries or expenses. With fees frozen at March 2022 levels,our ability to meet any expenses deemed unreasonable for 2023 would be difficult.

As a non for profit, unionized centre we must ensure financial viability of our business as well as commitment to salaries and benefits through our

negotiated collective agreements. The Board must balance this while ensuring fees are competitive and quality care is maintained for our families.

Below is a clip from Metro morning that was aired today regarding the CWELCC program. The operator touches on a few issues that our Board of

Directors have also identified as reasons why a centre wouldn’t necessarily immediately opt-in.
