Child care Initiative
The Child care Initiative is the second phase of a project that began with a 2013 report prepared by a child care working group comprised of students, staff and faculty at the University of Manitoba. The report (which can be found below) highlights significant unmet needs of student, staff and faculty parents, including the limited availability of on and off campus child care spaces.

In response to the report, the University has committed to better understanding the issues, and to exploring child care options that may help to support students, staff and faculty. A consultant was hired in 2014 to study child care at U15 (peer) institutions, review business models for delivering child care services, assess possibilities for University of Manitoba and make recommendations for action. Below is the final report that was completed in 2015 along with infographics that highlight various sections of the document.
