$10 a Day Child Care to Make Life More Affordable for Canadian Families

August 17, 2021

Raising kids is expensive, and for too many families in Canada, early learning and child care is not accessible.

We have to change that if we’re going to build a Canada that is better for everyone.

That’s why we’re investing in $10 a day child care for all Canadian families. And in Quebec, where child care is already affordable, we’re working with the province to create more spaces and improve working conditions for educators.

Our plan builds a better path forward for Canadian families. And we’ve already signed agreements with eight provinces and territories, covering nearly half of children under six in Canada.

But Erin O’Toole’s Conservatives want to cancel our progress and take us backward. He won’t create a single child care space for families, and he wants to eliminate the 250,000 spaces we’re creating across the country.

We can’t let that happen.

We have to move forward – for everyone.
