Today, I received a link to this document put out by the CCPA: https://www.policyalternatives.ca/publications/reports/saskatchewans-failing-report-card-child-care
It really didn’t surprise me. I’ve known for a while that it’s near impossible to establish a new daycare in this province. I tried. I blogged on my experience (see link at the top of the screen).
The city sent me a flyer with some proposed zoning changes. The very last point indicated they wanted to set minimum parking and drop off requirements for new facilities. While I agree that this should be considered by a daycare, by the city enforcing this as a requirement, they will simply add another barrier to setting up a new daycare. These institutions are already hard enough to set up! I emailed my city councilor; I hope it makes a difference.
