Impact: With an average cost of $7,000 per child, a $10 million investment could provide access to 1,428 children. Additional funding from existing provinces is expected to eliminate the current waiting list for the CDS/ASCD during the three years of this agreement. Footnote 17 Canada commits that the annual allocation for all provinces and territories for the period 2020-21 to 2027-28 will not be less than the annual allocation of this current agreement, under the conditions set out in 3.2.1. 9.2 Canada will make existing early learning and child care agreements with all provinces and territories, including all amendments, available to the public by publishing them on a Government of Canada website. As part of this, the Government of Canada is providing $1.05 billion over a base year to help provincial and territorial governments improve access to affordable, provincial and territorially regulated early learning and child care programs and services. Federal, regional and regional ministers, who are most responsible for early childhood education and child care, agree on the importance of helping parents, families and communities in their efforts to ensure the best possible future for their children. For more details on this agreement, see the multilateral framework for early learning and child care. In order to achieve the expected results of these proposed new investments in early childhood education and child care, British Columbia will also undertake administrative improvements and concentrated consultations, which are expected to represent $800,000 of the total 2017/18 aid amount and $290,000 from the entire funding framework for each of the next two years of the agreement. Contractual agreements between MCFD, AHSABC and FNHA will clarify the roles and responsibilities of government partners. In addition to coordinating the means available through each government agency, the agreements aim to minimise the risk of duplication, reduce administrative anomalies and reduce the Community`s reporting burden. 3.2.3 In the event that the bilateral agreement is extended pursuant to Section 3.2.1, British Columbia may continue to use the funds allocated under this agreement, subject to the terms of the renewed agreement, to cover the same eligible investment areas covered by the funds received for the period 2017-2018-2019-2020.
5.2.3 By mutual agreement, Canada, with advance notice and opportunity to verify and comment on it, may include, in whole or in part, the B.C. Annual Report, as described in 5.2.2 a), in any public report that Canada or British Columbia may prepare for their own purposes, including all reports to Parliament or reports that may be published. 9.1 During the duration of this agreement, when another province or region, with the exception of the Province of Quebec, which is not part of the multilateral framework for rapid learning and child care, negotiates and excludes a rapid learning and child care agreement with Canada or negotiates an amendment to such an agreement, and if, in British Columbia`s reasonable opinion, any provision of this amended agreement or agreement is more favourable to that province or region than the terms set out in this agreement, Canada agrees to amend that agreement to allow similar treatment to allow British Columbia to receive similar treatment. This includes all provisions of the bilateral agreement, with the exception of the financial provisions covered in Section 4.0.
