PM Trudeau makes an announcement on child care in Nova Scotia – January 14, 2022



Prime Minister Justin Trudeau takes part in a virtual news conference to discuss the federal government’s progress in improving access to child care and early learning in Nova Scotia. He announces child-care fees in the province will be reduced by an average of 25 per cent beginning April 1 and will be retroactive to January 1, 2022. In July 2021, the Nova Scotia and federal governments announced an agreement to create a $10-a-day child-care program, one of a series of agreements reached between the federal government and the provinces and territories. Joining the prime minister are federal ministers Karina Gould (families, children and social development) and Sean Fraser (immigration, refugees and citizenship), as well as Tim Houston (premier of Nova Scotia), Becky Druhan (provincial minister of education and early childhood development), and several parents from Nova Scotia.
