On November 15th 2012, CUPE Ontario & the OCBCC are co-sponsored a public forum on early learning and child care.
Today in British Columbia (BC) there is a groundswell of support for affordable child care. It’s part of a community plan for a public system of early learning & child care.
Beginning in 2010 the Coalition of Child Care Advocates of BC (CCCABC) & the Early Childhood Educators of BC started a conversation with thousands of people. That province-wide dialogue has led to more than 6,000 organizations and individuals (so far) endorsing their plan for an integrated public system of early learning and child care.
Sharon Gregson from the CCCABC came to Toronto to tell us about their campaign.
