Learn about UEY Sites Across Canada
The Government of Canada began piloting the Understanding the Early Years initiatives in 12 sites across Canada. Phase I pilot sites were started in 2000-2001 and are now completed. Phase II sites started in 2002-2003 and are currently being finalized this year. The community of Abbotsford was the only BC UEY pilot site.
