Compass ELC has recently received the application to opt in to the Canada Wide Early Learning and Child Care (CWELCC) system and the guidelines for 2022. We are actively reviewing all information and have included some documents summarizing what we know so far, below.

Information we would need to collect from anyone that has provider-registered children (Compass ELC can support with gathering it for agency registered children).
Frequently asked questions
We know that this still isn’t the system that children, families and educators deserve but we are hopeful it is a step in the right direction and we will be able to have some influence over future guidelines and advocate for further improvements such as increased compensation and benefits for those working in the early learning and care sector.
We are being asked to share our intent to opt in or out of the system by the end of July so are actively reviewing all information, and considering feedback from members of our organization and parents so welcome any comments, questions or curiosities. At this point it is our intention to opt in but we will meet with our Board of Directors in late July to consider all of the information that we have gathered and make a final decision.
Thanks for continuing to partner with us in your early learning and care journey and please know we are here to support you as we all work together to navigate this change.
If you still have questions please reach out and we can either plan an in-person Q&A session or talk to you about your specific circumstances.
