The Ministry will make funding decisions in its sole discretion, which includes the actions it deems necessary to verify the validity of requests in order to remain fiscally responsible.
If the applicant has questions or concerns about the service provided by the capital funding team, or about a funding decision, they may contact Child Care Capital and Community Services through email at MCF.CCCF@gov.bc.ca with the following subject: “Attention: Operations Supervisor – Complaint”, or by telephone at 1-888-338-6622 (option 5) and request to speak with a Child Care Capital Funding Operations Supervisor.
