Behind the Issues: Ontario 2003 - Investing in quality child care

Behind the Issues by CCPA

The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) published Behind the Issues: Ontario 2003, a series of short studies intended to provide factual background information about the issues shaping the provincial election. Behind the Issues: Ontario 2003 is meant to enable voters to make informed decisions and effectively evaluate each party’s platform.

The CCPA examines child and family poverty in Ontario, with a specific focus on child-care programs. It argues the next provincial government must ensure that all families can share in the province’s collective prosperity; this includes having access to child care so that parents can work. All parties must commit to a strategy that substantially reduces child and family poverty through action in four key areas: good jobs; adequate social assistance; affordable housing; and, quality childcare.
