January 2022 MLA Report – Calgary Currie – Nicholas Milliken

Calgary Currie

Dear Neighbours,

I would like to wish you a Happy and Prosperous New Year! May 2022 bring new opportunities and time spent with friends and family. This past year, the government of Alberta has worked tirelessly on an economic recovery plan for all Albertans, and I think we are on the right track.

In fact, over the past four months, our province has created over 60,000 new jobs. We have also restored approximately 340,000 jobs lost since the beginning of the pandemic. Major financial institutions, from National Bank to ATB to the Conference Board of Canada, are now predicting that Alberta will lead Canada in economic growth in 2022. Another step in Alberta’s economic recovery is providing Alberta families access to high quality, affordable childcare that meets their diverse needs and allows them the opportunity to get back to work. Starting this month families will see their fees for childcare going down.

The Alberta government inked a historic made-in-Alberta childcare agreement with Ottawa in November. This new plan will make childcare more affordable for families with newborn to kindergarten aged children, reducing fees by an average of half starting this month. By 2026, all Alberta families will pay an average of $10 per day for childcare.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact my office at<a href="tel: 403-246-4794“> 403-246-4794 or by emailing me at [email protected].

Once again, wishing you and yours a happy 2022.
