Little Scholars Child Care centre in Sechelt will add 72 spaces at its facility due to the grant. Throughout the province, $33 million is being provided for 103 projects to create nearly 4,000 new licensed child-care spaces.

Little Scholars was the only facility on the Sunshine Coast to receive the grant.

Seniors driving

BC’s government announced on November 30 it is eliminating DriveABLE assessments to determine driver medical fitness. Critics of the partially computerized tests complained the methodology was not fair to seniors who lack computer literacy.

RoadSafetyBC will introduce a new test called the Enhanced Road Assessment on March 1, 2018.
