N.S. says it will create up to 1,000 new child-care spaces with $35M from Ottawa

Province says three-year agreement will also lead to greater subsidies for more families

The Nova Scotia government is promising to create as many as 1,000 new daycare spaces across the province as a result of a three-year $35 million deal signed Wednesday with Ottawa.
Premier Stephen McNeil, who attended the signing at St. Joseph's Children's Centre in Bedford along with a half dozen other federal and provincial politicians, called it a major investment in the future that will pay "huge dividends" for children and the "economic health of this province."
