Child care on the agenda in BC provincial election

May 08, 2013

The campaign for $10 / day child care has put child care on the map as one of the issues in the BC election campaign.

Going into the campaign, child care advocates had over 6000 endorsements for the child care plan - which has put enormous pressure on the political parties.

Neither of the main two political parties has committed to $ 10 /day child care but the NDP party committed to increasing spaces and reducing infant and toddler fees by 20% for licensed child care. A small, but significant step to $10 / day child care.
