Amendment 1

Between:

Referred to collectively as the “Parties.”

Preamble

Whereas the Parties concluded the Canada-Saskatchewan Canada-wide Early Learning and Child Care (ELCC) Agreement (“Agreement”) on August 13, 2021.

Whereas at the time of the signing of the Agreement, the Parties agreed that in fiscal year 2021 to 2022, at the request of Saskatchewan, and subject to approval of Canada’s Treasury Board, Saskatchewan may retain and carry forward to the following fiscal year any unexpended funds remaining from Saskatchewan’s annual contribution up to a maximum of 60%.

Whereas Saskatchewan indicates that since signing the Agreement, there have been challenges expending its fiscal year 2021 to 2022 allocation due to diverse implementation challenges.

Whereas the Parties agree to increase in fiscal year 2021 to 2022, Saskatchewan’s carry forward allowance from 60% to 64% for fiscal year 2021 to 2022 into fiscal year 2022 to 2023, representing an additional $4.6 million.

Now therefore, the parties agree to amend the Agreement, as follows:

  1. section 4 is amended by replacing section 4.6.1 with the following:
    • “4.6.1 In fiscal year 2021 to 2022, at the request of Saskatchewan, and subject to approval of Canada’s Treasury Board, Saskatchewan may retain and carry forward to the following fiscal year any unexpended funds remaining from Saskatchewan’s annual contribution payable under section 4.2, up to a maximum of 64% of the contribution payable. Any unexpended funds in excess of 64% of the contribution payable represents an overpayment subject to section 4.7”
  2. the Agreement remains unchanged in all other aspects
  3. this amending agreement shall be read in conjunction with the Agreement and shall take effect as if its provisions were an integral part of the Agreement
  4. this amending agreement shall take effect upon its signatures by the Parties
