The case for universal child care – CCPA releases new paper

A technical paper, just released by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, makes the case for universal child care and outlines what it will take to get us there: an overarching national policy framework that includes shared principles, an accountability framework, robust service systems designed and administered by each province/territory, local management and planning, and a voice for parents. Such a program would fit with Canadian federalism and provide a real range of options for families. Although building an excellent ECEC system is a complex task, it will be worth it if we are able to get it right from the start.
