Sadly, Vancouver Native Health Society will be closing Phil Bouvier Family Centre daycare at the end of this week, despite objections from Indigenous and non-Indigenous community groups, offers of additional government funding, and overtures from several non-profits who were interested in taking over the daycare.
We welcome you to join us on Friday November 9th for a rally and community march to honour the tremendous work the staff at Phil Bouvier Daycare have done over the last 10 years and to mourn the loss of this Centre. We would like the Phil Bouvier building, which was renovated largely at government expense, to get a new operator so that it can once again provide quality licensed childcare.
When: Friday November 9th 9:30am – 11am
Rally Starting Point: Raycam Community Centre - 920 East Hastings Street,
March to Phil Bouvier Family Centre at 717 Princess will start at 10:00am
