Government consultations on child care
November 22, 2016
In September, the Ontario government announced a commitment to expand child care for 0-4 years olds in Ontario by 100,000 spaces – doubling existing spaces over 5 years.

In this context, the Ministry of Education is holding public town hall meetings in selected communities around Ontario. These are public sessions where you can have your say. You do not need to be an expert on child care policy. This is the place to share your experience and call for a quality early learning and child care system that all families can afford and trust.  Read the Ontario government's consultation materials and Discussion Paper  Download our Tip Sheet Download our Discussion Guide Q&A (English) (Français) RELATED: Read the CCAAC's What We Want in an Early Learning and Child Care Framework and Child Care in Canada by 2020: A Vision and a Way Forward
