The Early Childhood Infrastructure Fund is for projects that preserve or expand existing infrastructure of licensed centre-based child care spaces or to create new licensed centre-based child care spaces in NWT communities.

Funding priority will be given to communities with limited or non-existent early learning and child care programming.

Available Funding

The total budget available is approximately $5.9 million for 2024-2025. The amount applicants receive is determined on a per proposal basis and available funding.


Dates will be provided later. We will be issuing multiple calls for proposals during the year and have multiple review times.
