MCCA’s Pre-Budget Media Release

MCCA is calling on the Province of Manitoba to prioritize robust and inclusive support of the early learning & child care workforce in Budget 2022. The pandemic has continually revealed how essential and how critically important ELCC is for Manitobans.

MCCA’s recommendations for a comprehensive workforce strategy are:

  • An immediate increase to operating funding to licensed child care programs whose funding has been frozen since January 2016, supporting fair wages and benefits for ECEs and providers
  • The adoption of MCCA’s Market Competitive Salary Guideline Scale 2022-23, which recognizes ECE education and experience
  • Improved accessibility for children with additional support needs
  • Increased spaces to meet the growing needs of Manitoba families

“High quality early learning and child care is only achievable with an educated, supporte and fairly compensated workforce”, said Caryn LaFleche, President of MCCA. “If we truly wish to develop a high-quality, affordable, accessible, inlusive ELCC system in Manitoba, the chidl care workforce must be part of Budget 2022.”
