On a per capita basis, Manitoba offers one of the highest numbers of licensed child care spaces in Canada with licensing standards among the best in North America. Costs for child care are affordable to most parents, with financial subsidies available to qualifying families.
Child Day Care is a program of Manitoba Family Services and Housing and oversees the operation of child care in the province. Child Day Care is committed to accessible, high-quality childcare for children from 12 weeks to 12 years of age and offers a number of valuable services.
Companies wishing to explore the various options available to support working parents may call the Manitoba Child Care Association, a non-profit organization incorporated in 1974 to promote and support quality child care. The Association is also pleased to offer specialized support and assistance to organizations and employers wishing to address child care needs in the workplace.
