Five years after cancelling the national child care program: high cost, little choice for parents

February 6 marks the fifth anniversary of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s cancellation of a national child care program. Child care advocates and women’s groups have a message for the government: Canada urgently needs a public system of early childhood education and care.

“Cancelling the national child care program has put a huge burden on low, modest and middle income families,” said Sue Delanoy of the Child Care Advocacy Association of Canada. “Mr. Harper claims he’s delivered ‘choice in child care’ but the facts show that for most families, the options are severely limited. What families need is a quality system that’s accessible and affordable for everyone.”
