New investments from Canada, MB, support ECE projects in and with Indigenous communities

New funding from the Government of Canada and provinces such as the Government of Manitoba will support early learning and childcare projects across Canada, several of which involve Indigenous communities and researchers. The federal government recently invested funds into a variety of projects supporting ECE research and learning. These included the University of Winnipeg Student Association Daycare’s work to develop and test a safe outdoor play area for culturally appropriate Indigenous learning and programming while providing staff with Indigenous professional development; as well as the YMCA of Northwest Avalon’s project on recruitment and retention of ECE professionals for rural and underserved communities, including Indigenous communities. Canada and MB also announced that they would provide $300K to help 24 childcare facilities develop and implement Indigenous-focused cultural programming.
