The Government of Yukon extends engagement period for review of the Child Care Act
The public engagement for the review of the Child Care Act has been extended to February 29, 2024, to allow Yukoners more time to respond to the proposed changes to this important legislation.
The engagement period launched on November 27, 2023, and has garnered several hundred responses from parents, early childhood educators, operators of family day homes and early learning and child care centres, First Nations governments, education partners and interested stakeholders.
Changes to this important legislation will consider the key principles of quality, affordability, inclusivity and accessibility. A What We Heard document will be prepared and released following the end of the engagement.
