It is essential for funding to begin in the 2011 budget. Without it we will see child care fees rise anywhere from 15 to 30%.
“Ontario Can’t Work Without Child Care”
2011 is an important year for child care with a provincial budget expected in March and a provincial election scheduled for October 6. In advance of the Provincial Election and through to the election, we will be holding community meetings across the Province, attending supervisor meetings, encouraging parents and staff to sign a postcard and distributing a kit with fast and easy advocacy ideas.
We are getting together to say: “My Community Needs Child Care – We Can’t Afford to Lose It”

We will be using results from the Financial Impact Survey to show that we need stabilization funding in our sector. If your centre has not yet done the survey, please click here.
We need your voices and stories as evidence of the need for investments in our programs.
