Financial Help to Build More Early Years Centres
Communities across PEI could soon see more childcare spaces and facilities available
A new pilot program is making it easier to build or expand Early Years Centre-designated childcare facilities across the province
Municipalities; non-profits; community-based service organizations; and private developers are eligible to apply for a low-interest loan to support new construction. Current Early Years Centres can apply to the program to support expansion. Two non-repayable grants are also available: a Capital Grant and a Business Plan Grant. Find details HERE.

They help new residents feel at home by being available to answer questions and concerns; they host events – everything from cultural activities to neighbour-to-neighbour gatherings; and they host information sessions related to business, employment and even banking.
