Some early childhood educators will be receiving wage increases, thanks to an investment from the provincial government.
The $28 million investment was announced yesterday.
The wage increases will be rolled out in 2019 and 2020, and will happen over a four year period. Trained early childhood educators see their wages go from $16 dollars to $19 dollars an hour.
