A New 10-Year Federal-Provincial-Territorial Framework

Ottawa and the provinces and territories agreed to a 10-year agreement on early learning and childcare — a first in Canada.

But it isn’t ambitious enough, providing only a fraction of the funds child care needs. And making child care universally available isn’t even a long-term goal.

The agreement lets parents and children down. And it ignores everything that child care advocates and experts have told the government.

What Was Said

The federal government promised a ‘framework ensuring affordable, high-quality, fully inclusive child care to all families who need it.’ This agreement doesn’t come close.
