BUILD IT RIGHT
CHILD CARE CAMPAIGN

This is a critical time for Canada's children. During the recent Federal election the Federal Liberal government outlined its commitment to spend $5.5 billion for the creation of a national early learning and child care system.

Parents and child care communities across the country have been working harder than ever to ensure that our governments get the building blocks for a system right - right from the start.

The Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care, the Ontario Federation of Labour, and the Canadian Labour Congress are holding Forums, hosted by local labour councils, in 15 cities across Ontario from February 21 to March 10.

Now is the time to pressure governments at every level for the creation of a national early learning and child care system based on Quality, Universal, Accessible and Developmental principles.

The Ontario government can play a critical leadership role in the establishment of a national child care system that will directly benefit Canadian families, their children and early childhood workers.

In attendance at the Windsor Child Care Forum:

Anna Angelidis, Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care
Irene Harris, Executive Vice-President, Ontario Federation of Labour

Come and hear what's at stake for child care in Windsor, share your experiences and ideas and participate to ensure a high quality child care system for Ontario and Canada.
