The provincial government is a little closer to offering universal child care after introducing new legislation yesterday to make it easier for parents to access child care, and for providers to find much-needed workers.
The proposed early learning and child care act would require government to report every year on progress towards universal child care, as well as on Indigenous-led child care. The early childhood educators act would make the certification process more efficient for child care workers who have been trained in other countries.
The Chamber advocates for accessible and affordable child care as an important investment that enables more parents to remain in the workforce.
