Ready-to-Move (RTM) Child Care Project

Expression of Interest

Manitoba's 2022/23 Action Plan under the Canada-Manitoba Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care Agreement allocates $70.7 million towards capital development of new regulated non-profit infant and preschool child care spaces in higher need communities.

Under the agreement, Manitoba is targeting the development of 23,000 new full time child care spaces by March 31, 2026, and capital grant funding is allocated to support the creation of 5,890 new child care spaces.

The RTM child care project offers a collaborative approach to construct a large number of child care facilities servicing infant and pre-school spaces within the province under expedited timelines and in areas with a demonstrated child care need. RTM construction technology allows the development of high-quality new facilities built under controlled conditions before they are moved to the final site and placed on a permanent foundation. Under the this initiative, RTM construction costs will be fully funded under the Canada-Manitoba Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care Agreement in exchange for land, servicing and free rent for the child care operator.

The Early and Learning Child Care Division invites Manitoba municipalities, First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities, and organizations to participate in the RTM child care project by submitting an Expression of Interest to the Department of Education and Early Childhood Learning.
