For the first time in Canada there is overwhelming public and cross-sectoral support as well as political will tied to using a significant amount of money to build a Canada-wide child care system. The sector is well positioned to offer a variety of flexible, high quality child care choices to parents that do not compromise quality of care, safety and working conditions. Expanding in partnership with the nonprofit sector now will have positive cascading effects for children, parents – especially women, the child care workforce, communities and the broader economy for years to come.
