Child Care for Health Care Workers

We have an urgent and important request of any members of the Island Health family who have children at home and are concerned about finding child care, so that you can continue to care for others. The Ministry of Education and Ministry of Children and Family Development are working closely together to meet the child care needs of essential workers like you.

Today they asked health authorities to request all staff and medical staff who have child care needs to submit information to them by the end of day tomorrow (Friday, March 27).

We know this is a very quick turnaround, and not everyone who needs this information will see it right away – so if you know if a colleague who requires this information, please share!
