Annual child-poverty report being released in Ottawa Tuesday looks to all parties to address the issue in the 2018 Ontario election.
Child care fees in Ontario have reached crisis level. Our province is home to the top eight cities with the highest child care fees in Canada. In Toronto alone, there are 14, 365 children on the waiting list for fee subsidy. Many parents do not even bother putting their children on the waiting list; they know it will take years before their children are enrolled in an affordable, high quality child care program. As such, the number of parents in need of affordable child care is likely even higher than the waiting lists demonstrate.
Toronto cannot wait ten years for child care. We need affordable, accessible, high quality child care NOW! Click here to read more about our $10 and Change Campaign
