Government consultations on child care

FEBRUARY 3RD UPDATE: The government consultations have now closed. Check back to our website soon for a collection of organizations' submissions to the Ministry of Education.


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. At the same time, the federal and provincial governments are negotiating a framework on early learning and child care.

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. 

More consultation dates may be added. Check for updates.


More consultation locations have been added for Mildmay, Windsor, Sudbury, Durham and Woodbridge. Check for updates.
