Provincial Wage Enhancement Grant Petition

*** UPDATE! We've received thousands of paper petitions. We'll be getting them into the legislature starting next week. Now that we've reached our deadline for paper petitions, we're launching another way to show support with an online petition. Please click, sign and share! (And if you signed in paper, you CAN also sign online. Just one more way to show support.) ***

The OCBCC has launched a petition to continue the Provincial Wage Enhancement Grant to Registered Early Childhood Educators and child care workers in licensed child care. This funding provides $2 per hour in wage support to many educators and it is critical that it continues. Funding has not yet been confirmed beyond March 31, 2019. The future of the grant is in the hands of the provincial government and will be decided by the Ontario Budget this spring.

Print, sign and share the petition today to tell the Ontario Government to keep the $2 per hour wage enhancement.

  • Petition in English or French to print and sign (PDF). Please mail completed petitions to the OCBCC by Feb. 14, 2019.
  • Frequently Asked Questions in English or French (PDF).

Please note: This is an official paper petition to the Ontario legislature. Only paper originals (not copies, emails or faxes) are accepted by the legislature. Signers must include their full address, including postal code, for the petition to be accepted by the legislature.

If you are interested in collecting signatures in your community to present directly to your local MPP, please write to to become a local petition leader.
