As you know, over 26,000 Manitobans signed our general petition earlier this year to urge the provincial government to increase the operating revenue for not for profit licensed early learning and child care programs. In support of this and with the upcoming provincial and federal elections, MCCA is holding an awareness walk at Assiniboine Park on Tuesday, August 20th, at 6:00 p.m. We will doing a 2.88 km walk starting and finishing at the Lyric Theatre. After, we will hear from various stakeholders who will share their stories about the importance of early learning & child care and the impacts when there is insufficient investment. In addition, we will be inviting representatives from the registered political parties to speak to their party’s platform promises on how they intend to support our sector.
We are encouraging all our rural members to organize a walk in their region to walk in unison with us on this special day. If you need help, don’t hesitate to reach out. Send us your photos (#support26K) and we will upload them to our social media sites.
