Canada is now the lowest spender on early childhood education and care of any Organization of Economic Development (OEDC) country. It ranks at the very bottom of international assessments around access and quality. We need a national child care plan to be part of any vision of Canada’s future. Help raise the issue by:
Raising child care issues at all-candidates’ meetings and when candidates come to your door (see Election Flyer)
Protesting the lack of child care progress at demonstrations when Stephen Harper makes a campaign appearance in your community
