As the government continues into the third session of the 40th Legislative Assembly, I am honoured to continue to represent the constituents of Seine River.

I am also privileged to have been appointed to represent Manitobans on a new front, as the Minister of Jobs and the Economy.

We know industry and businesses across North America, and indeed right here in Manitoba, are clamouring for skilled workers. This is why we must continue to support our teachers and educational assistants, who are preparing our children to be the best they can be for the workforce of tomorrow. We currently have some of the lowest post-secondary tuition rates in the country, and we’re investing over $21 million annually in apprenticeships.

With a focus on a steady economy and job creation, we need to ensure we have exceptional child care for Manitoba families. This will give much-needed support for parents with increasingly busy schedules, while allowing children time to develop social and life skills in another nurturing environment.  

In Seine River, we are focused on doing just that. The expansion of Les Tournesols de Saint-Vital at École Christine Lespérance is well underway, where an additional 16 infant spots and 22 preschool spots have been added to the child care centre. We are also moving forward on the construction of a brand-new daycare facility at Highbury School, which will include 64 new child care spots. As the current tendering process draws to a close, construction will begin. We will keep the community apprised of construction developments, as well as information on registration in the months ahead.

I welcome your feedback and advice as I continue in my role of representing you at the Manitoba legislature.  Feel free to contact my office with your comments at 204-255-7840 or at TheresaOswald@yourmanitoba.ca
