CUPW is working with Franco-Sol French Language Child Care Centre, which operates ten different locations across Windsor and Amherstburg and with Ska:na Family Learning Centre, which operates four different locations in Windsor and Sarnia. The two agencies provide a variety of flexible, high-quality programs and services to children from infancy to age 12. These include extended-hours care. All services provided are inclusive of children with special needs.
In Rocky Mountain House (Red Deer), the union spearheaded a rural community development initiative to support our RSMC members. A broad cross-section of community partners came together to develop a non-profit child care centre, Community and Child Care Connections (CCCC). CCCC delivers services to children aged six months to 12, and offers extended hours care.
In Fredericton, CUPW and UPCE-PSAC partnered with the Preschool Centre, a non-profit, community-based program, to develop a child care centre for infants through to school-age children. It now operates six centres across Fredericton and provides for flexible extended hours.
In Winnipeg, Knox Day Nursery meets the changing needs of the community, including flexible hours of child care. Knox Day Nursery provides care to children aged 18 months to six years, serving families from diverse cultures and integrating children with special needs. The centre is open from 6:30 A.M. to 8:00 P.M.
In St. John’s, members have access to the CUPW-Family and Child Care Connections Resource Centre, which includes licensed home child care, a toy-lending library, a children’s play group for members and caregivers, and information and resources on parenting and child care services. The centre also operates a satellite centre in Corner Brook.

Canada needs a postal bank. Thousands of rural towns and villages in our country do not have a bank, but many of them have a post office that could provide financial services. As well, nearly two million Canadians desperately need an alternative to payday lenders. A postal bank could be that alternative. Download and sign the petition urging the Government of Canada to instruct Canada Post to add postal banking, with a mandate for financial inclusion.
