Child Care Now congratulates our Board member Martha Friendly who is this year’s winner of the Charles Taylor Prize for Excellence in Policy Research awarded by the Broadbent Institute

Martha is the founder and executive director of the Childcare Resource and Research Unit. Her work spans decades and has informed our advocacy movement for a universal public not-for-profit system of high-quality child care.

Martha’s work doing evidence-based child care policy research is central to the child care movement in Canada, which is, in her words, “a broad, multi-disciplinary, multi-method, multi-perspective approach that begins with, and is based on social justice values”.
