The B.C. Early Years Strategy is the Province’s long-term plan to ensure our youngest citizens have the best possible start in life. It was released in 2013 and builds on the Province’s $1-billion annual investment in the early years.

The Provincial Office for the Early Years (EYO) was established in 2014 and works across ministries to oversee the implementation of the B.C. Early Years Strategy. The EYO’s goal is to move from strategy to action, implementing the B.C. Early Years Centre network and formulating a range of other ways to increase the quality, accessibility, affordability of early years services across B.C.

This work involves identifying and filling gaps in B.C.’s early years infrastructure. It also requires examining and challenging existing services and supports to ensure investments are made in a way that brings the greatest possible benefit to children and families.

Along the way, EYO staff engage widely with stakeholders and other levels of government to learn how we can best achieve the goals of the B.C. Early Years Strategy.

The Director of Aboriginal Stakeholder Engagement is responsible for leading and directing aboriginal engagement processes for the purpose of ensuring the success of Strategy initiatives and establishing a coordinated/integrated “one-government” approach for the delivery of existing and new programs and services to aboriginal parents and children under the age of six. The inclusion of Aboriginal perspectives, practices and approaches is integral to the successful integration of the Strategy.
