BC budget 2018: an historic breakthrough
The 2018 provincial BC budget is considered a historical breakthrough that commits more than $1 billion in new provincial and federal child care funding over three years. This level of public investment delivers on key recommendations of the community’s $10aDay Plan, which was advanced by the Coalition of Child Care Advocates of BC and the Early Childhood Educators of BC.
The new investments come with a bold strategy to reduce parent fees, work with public and community partners to increase licensed spaces and support the early childhood educator (ECE) workforce.
The advocacy groups have created a comparison chart of the proposed $10aDay Plan what the government has committed to implement as well as advocacy priorities going forward.
