The province is expanding eligibility on February 6 for its subsidy program, which is expected to triple the number of children currently supported in regulated child care spaces. Joining the prime minister are federal ministers Karina Gould (families, children and social development) and Dan Vandal (Prairies Economic Development Canada), as well as Manitoba Premier Heather Stefanson and Wayne Ewasko (provincial minister of education and early childhood learning), who take part from Winnipeg.
