UWSA breaks ground on daycare expansion

July 6, 2017

The University of Winnipeg Students’ Association has broken ground on a major expansion on the UWSA Day Care that will allow for 32 more children and nine new employees at the centre. “As the students’ association, we are proud to own and operate a daycare which is an essential service for student parents,” said UWSA President Laura Elsie Garinger. “Students continue to make accessible childcare on campus a priority and we are committed to removing barriers to postsecondary education for all students.” Construction on the nearly $1.2M expansion is funded by the Province of Manitoba, the UWSA, and UWinnipeg, and is expected to be completed in November 2017.
