NDP Child Care Act passes at committee

Amid a growing crisis facing ordinary parents and working families, there is now light at the end of the tunnel for the passage of the NDP’s Early Learning and Child Care Act. Bill C-303 passed second reading last fall and has been studied for the last three weeks at the Standing Committee on Human Resources and Social Development.

“With this landmark Child Care Act we will ensure that all children have access to high-quality and affordable early learning opportunities,” said Denise Savoie, the NDP MP (pictured), who moved the bill.

Since 2003, $2.65 billion has been transferred to the provinces for creating child care spaces. Yet no one knows how the money has been spent or how many spaces have been created.
