Our PC Government is proud to announce $300,000 to support 24 child-care facilities to implement Indigenous-focused cultural programming through the Indigenous Programming Grant.
This is just one step in our government’s ongoing work to towards the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action, and we will continue to make historic investments towards reconciliation and education.
Our PC Government is dedicated towards truth and reconciliation, and this investment will help educate the next generation for years to come. With this funding, child-care facilities will be able to invest in the necessary means to integrate Indigenous programming into lessons.
The funding will also provide support to staff to expand their knowledge of Indigenous cultures and traditions to better incorporate these lessons into programming.
Each of the 24 child-care facilities will receive grants between $5,000 and $25,000 based on the number of infant and preschool spaces offered by the facility. These facilities applied for grants through the 2020-2021 Indigenous Programming Grant intake.
Our PC Government remains committed to truth and reconciliation and will continue to make historic investments towards Indigenous-based education and programming.
