The Ontario municipal elections are coming up on October 22nd, 2018. We need to elect champions for child care to all municipal and regional councils. We've put together a fact sheet of key information on child care issues in Ontario municipalities, including how to get involved in the election and questions for candidates.
In Ontario, municipalities and regions have a big role in child care – planning, administering, funding and sometimes operating early learning and child care programs. Local Councillors can be champions for child care programs: pushing for more municipal funds, and advocating to senior levels of government for more investment in child care.
