Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Manitoba will achieve an average of $10-a-day child care by April 2, which is three years ahead of schedule. 

Trudeau says it is a great reminder of what can be done when governments work together.

Manitoba signed onto the Liberal government's national child-care plan in 2021, which saw Ottawa commit $1.2 billion to the province over five years. 

Premier Heather Stefanson says hitting the milestone early is important for the future of Manitoba families. 

Trudeau is next scheduled to visit health-care workers at a hospital.

Trudeau's Winnipeg visit also included a Liberal party fundraising event Thursday evening.
