In partnership with the Fédération des parents de la francophonie manitobaine (FPFM), the Université de Saint-Boniface (USB) and Réseau de développement économique et d’employabilité (RDÉE Canada), CDEM has issued three request for proposals for business plans and a feasibility study for new francophone day care centres in Grande Pointe, Sage Creek and Windsor Park.


Canada’s minority francophone communities face significant challenges in accessing a range of early childhood services. Those challenges include waiting lists, insufficient supply of services to meet the demand and issues related to infrastructure, human resources, promotion and awareness, and geographic distribution

In response to the urgent need for early childhood services, the Réseau de développement économique et d’employabilité (RDÉE Canada), the Commission nationale des parents francophones and the Association des collèges et universités de la francophonie canadienne formed a strategic alliance and established a national tripartite committee on early childhood and called upon the federal government to implement an action plan tailored to the needs of the various regions of the country.

The government in turn mandated the committee to initiate change under an entrepreneurship program funded by the federal government through Employment and Social Development Canada and administered by RDÉE Canada.

The Manitoba regional committee includes the CDEM, the Fédération des parents de la francophonie manitobaine (FPFM), and the Université de Saint-Boniface (USB) with the university’s school of technical and professional programs.
