Now accepting proposals to support the creation of centre-based child care spaces
The Government of the Northwest Territories is now accepting funding proposals for the Early Childhood Infrastructure Fund for the 2024-2025 fiscal year.

This funding supports the preservation, expansion and creation of centre-based child care spaces in communities across the Northwest Territories. Funding priority will be given to communities with limited or non-existent early learning and child care programming.
The deadline to apply is March 13, 2024.
