Letter to Municipalities Child Care Funding - March 3, 2020

March 3, 2020

DSB Member Municipalities 


Dear Member Municipalities: 

The purpose of this letter is to bring to your attention that, at its regular monthly meeting of February 27, 2020, the Manitoulin-Sudbury District Services Board Child Care Funding - Issue Report and Resolution #20-22.  

A duly authorized copy of the Manitoulin-Sudbury DSB Resolution # 20-22 is attached as well as the issue report calling upon the Ministry of Education to address the funding inequities that have been created by the current funding model for Northern Ontario.  

The use of LICO-AT disproportionately and inappropriately favours communities in Southern Ontario compared to communities in Northern Ontario. 

The Board is asking that your municipality will pass a similar resolution.


Les Gamble
Chair of Manitoulin-Sudbury DSB
