Tell us why Canada needs child care!
Children and families in Canada have a right to access quality, affordable child care services. Yet, only 20% of young children today have access to a regulated space and, in many regions, child care fees are the second highest expense for young families.
Early childhood educators (ECE’s) also have a right to be socially valued and properly paid for their work, yet ECE professionals earn about half as much, on average, as other college-trained workers. From grandparents to economists, working parents to student parents, health care professionals to social workers, early childhood educators to university professors - and so many others - everyone has a child care story.
Now is the time to add your voice to the chorus of people across Canada who say
"We Need Child Care".
