TG Emergency Child Care for children of Essential Workers
Tłı̨chǫ Government provides emergency child care for children of Essential Workers
The Tłı̨chǫ Government supports health care and frontline workers during the COVID-19 outbreak, and essential and critical service workers are committed in supporting our health care and our communities in these unprecedented times.
The Tłı̨chǫ Government is responding to a critical need for emergency daycare services in Behchokǫ̀ to meet the needs of essential and critical service workers.
This is NOT a regular daycare service, but one especially designed to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The Chief Public Health Officer has NOT CLOSED daycare centres across the NWT, classifying them as essential services because of the invaluable role they play in caring for the children of medical and other critical staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The safest option for families is to have children remain at home.
“Our Government will do what is needed to ensure health care and frontline workers have our support to continue to work, and keep our people and communities safe.” -Grand Chief George Mackenzie
