Alberta will receive 3.8-billion dollars in federal funding over the next five years after signing onto the federal government's universal child-care program.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the program will make a huge difference in the lives of families in the province but also in Canada's economic recovery.
Under the deal, fees in licenced child-care facilities are to be cut in half next year and fall to 10-dollars a day, on average, within five years.
Choice of child care had been a sticking point in negotiations and Premier Jason Kenny says he will make subsidies eligible for all
types of licensed child-care facilities up to kindergarten.
