Inspiring & Promoting Excellence in Child Care & Early Learning


Covid 19 Support: Innovation Canada

Knowing that everyone is working hard to navigate the challenges of providing quality child care services through the COVID-19 pandemic, Westcoast Child Care Resource Centre continues to share resources and information to support your important work. In this article, we are highlighting information about federal and provincial government programs that provide financial and other supports which your organization may be eligible for.

Details about these programs is available through the federal government’s Innovation Canada website. This user-friendly website invites you to answer a few questions about your organization, and then provides you with a tailored list of programs and services that may be helpful. (The questionnaire does not specifically address child care, so we suggest choosing the option that fits most closely). Innovation Canada indicates that you will receive a link to access your tailored list, and it will be kept up to date with the latest changes. You’ll also receive occasional emails reminding you of upcoming deadlines and updates.
