The Saskatchewan government is supporting a 1,500-seat increase in licensed child homes for families by 2020. This will not only increase the availability of child care for families across the province, but will also create employment opportunities for those who care for children in their homes. 12.1 This agreement, including Schedules 1 and 2, covers the entire agreement reached by the parties with respect to the purpose of this agreement. Last year, 75 new daycare centres for French-speaking children were added. The province has focused on allocating space to an organization that meets the child care needs of Francophone families and children. 5.1.3 Ontario has presented an updated action plan for fiscal year 2020-2021, as outlined in Schedule 2, which, if necessary, updates the investment areas and objectives set out in its action plan for the 2017-18 to 2019-2020 fiscal years. This updated action plan may make changes to the programming and implementation of the program, provided that affordable, federally funded child care spaces continue to receive as broad support as possible in exceptional circumstances. Updates to this action plan are made public after this agreement is signed by both parties. 4.1 These contributions are in addition, not instead of those that Canada currently makes to Ontario through the Canada Social Transfer, to support early childhood development and education and child care in Ontario.
