British Columbia has made a $136m investment in an Early Care and Learning Recruitment and Retention Strategy (ECL R&R Strategy) for the province’s Early Care and Learning sector. The ECL R&R Strategy is part of a larger ten-year plan (“Childcare BC”) to increase the quality, affordability, and availability of child care spaces in British Columbia. The ECL R&R Strategy proposes to meet the following three overarching long-term goals:
An adequate and stable workforce comprised of qualified and skilled early care and learning professionals
Early care and learning as a viable, sustainable, and valued career
Appropriate compensation plans and human resource strategies.
