Canada's dismal record in early education child care

Here's a start to determining how Canada stacks up against other developed countries in the world when it comes to early education child care. In a study of 14 countries by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), we rank dead last.

Canada spends 0.25 per cent of its gross domestic product on early education child care, which means for children under age 6. Denmark tops the list, spending two per cent of its GDP on early education child care.

The list looks like this:
  1. Denmark
  2. Sweden
  3. Norway
  4. Finland
  5. France
  6. Hungary
  7. Austria
  8. The U.K.
  9. The U.S.
  10. The Netherlands
  11. Germany
  12. Italy
  13. Australia
  14. Canada
