Yukon Early Learning and Child Care Funding Program: Child Care Operational Funding – Wage Enhancements

By mmuise

The Child Care Operational Funding is designed to support licensed operators in reducing their operational expenses and to support the provision of high-quality early learning programming.
The Wage Enhancement Funding provides operators a wage supplement for the Early Childhood Educators employed by them. The wage supplement will be paid based on the actual hours worked by each Early Childhood Educator to a maximum of 5 40 hours per week, and will include an additional 12% payment for mandatory employment related costs (e.g., CPP, EI and WCB).
