"Under the Childcare BC New Spaces Fund, child care providers can apply for funding to create new child care spaces at any time throughout the year under a continuous application process. It is part of the Province's Childcare BC plan, designed to give B.C. families access to affordable, quality child care when they want or need it. Since July 2018, the Province has funded approximately 9,000 new licensed child care spaces throughout B.C. More new spaces will be announced as projects are approved."
