We need action, we can’t wait!

We need better pay, better quality, better access.

In 2021, the federal government announced it would spend $30 billion over the next five years to reduce parent fees dramatically and significantly increase the number of licensed programs. 

Good news: Fees have been reduced. 

Bad news: Demand for affordable licensed child care spots outstrips supply. 

The main obstacle to expanding licensed child care is a shortage of early childhood educators and other child care staff. It’s a problem that governments must fix urgently: better pay means better quality and better access.

Child Care Now will be submitting your e-signature, with thousands of others, to elected officials to demand better pay, better quality, and better access.
