Introduction of a bill to establish an early childhood development fund

The bill, introduced on June 17, was a follow-up to the budget speech delivered in March 2008 by.Monique Jérôme Forget, Minister of Finance. It establishes a fund to support the overall development of children aged five years and under who are living in poverty. The fund will be used to finance activities, projects and initiatives that foster-as early as possible and with the involvement of parents-the children's physical, psychological, cognitive, linguistic, social and emotional development. The Quebec government will allocate $150 million to the Fund over 10 years, and the Lucie and André Chagnon Foundation has pledged $250 million.
