MMF to develop childcare centre in The Pas through $10.3M investment

November 17, 2021
The Manitoba Métis Federation (MMF) will be developing an affordable housing project in The Pas, Manitoba, which will include a childcare centre. MMF has invested $10.3M and partnered with The Pas and The Pas Community Development Corporation on the project. The daycare will have 40 spaces and will have a focus on teaching children about culture and heritage through land-based learning. The construction is anticipated to begin next spring, with the daycare being a top priority. “We’re going to make sure land-based learning and language learning [is used],” said MMF president David Chartrand. “We want to teach them about the land and the environment … If you start teaching at a young age, it’s a practice they’ll follow for the rest of their lives.” CBC (MB)
