Title: Child Care Funding Programs


Child Care Funding Programs

Recommended Action

Whereas there is an obvious need for child care in the Township of Langley;


Whereas the Township of Langley can support the creation of quality, affordable, child care spaces to help provide employment, relief for working parents and support a strong economy; and


Whereas there are unprecedented funding programs now offered by the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) and the Province of BC to help local government plan and build new child care spaces;


Therefore be it resolved that the Township of Langley direct staff to apply for the UBCM Community Child Care Planning and Community Child Care Space Creation Programs, and the Childcare BC New Spaces Fund to do a child care needs assessment, and come back to Council with a recommendation of ways to potentially avail ourselves of this new funding opportunity to create child care spaces.
