Child care in the 2018 Ontario municipal elections October 22nd

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.
