MCCA has issued a media release requesting the Government of Manitoba pause its online consultation to implement regulatory changes some of which are in support of Bill 9, The Community Child Care Standards Amendment Act, and other changes which appear new.
“The timing of this significant regulatory review is not reasonable. As Dr. Roussin has repeatedly communicated, responding to the pandemic is the first priority for our government and for all Manitobans, including those who use or provide early learning and child care programs,” says MCCA’s President, Caryn LaFleche. “It is unrealistic and unfair to expect individuals to have the time to give thorough consideration to the proposed changes. Early learning and child care programs’ main priority is how to provide quality, nurturing child care while maintaining the safety and health of the children, families and staff during this time.”
