As part of their plan to dramatically increase access to affordable childcare for parents, the BC Liberals have committed to building an additional 10,000 new childcare spaces throughout the province if elected.

Today’s $100 million announcement builds on the BC Liberals’ promise to implement a $10-a-day childcare plan for low-income families and offer more affordable child care for families who need it most.

The BC Liberal plan will also expand training and support needed to get better qualified childcare workers and make it easier to find spaces through the creation of a province-wide, online application system.

Under the BC Liberal plan, families with annual household incomes up to $65,000 will have access to $10-a-day childcare and there will be stepped rates for families with incomes up to $125,000.
