Registered Pension Plans and Retirement Supports for Manitoba’s Early Learning and Child Care Workforce

On December 1, 2010, the Manitoba government began providing funding for registered pension plans and retirement supports for child care workers. This initiative was part of the Workforce Stability Strategy under Family Choices, Manitoba’s Five-Year Agenda for Early Learning and Child Care.

In consultation with members of the child care sector, Manitoba identified three new ways to help workers plan for their retirement:

  1. Registered pension plans: for full- and part-time child care workers in licensed, non-profit centres and nursery schools
  2. Matching Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) contributions: for licensed, home-based family and group child care providers
  3. A long-term service recognition retirement benefit: for long-term workers in centres and nursery schools and for home-based family and group child care providers
