City communications manager Wendy Heshka said that, during a recent council meeting ,the province identified a childcare space shortage and the city is working to understand the issue locally.

The city received grant funding previously in order to help assess local childcare gaps.

“We’re looking to learn from you about your experiences,” Heshka said. “This will allow us to feed back to the province about what we’ve learned in our community and it will also inform our own efforts locally.”

Heshka said research is focused on parents without childcare and/or with inadequate care. 

To complete the survey, go online to kamloops.ca/childcare.
