Child care petition targets federal government

The Child Care Advocacy Association of Canada has released a petition and some great shareables for you to pledge your support and urge the federal government to end the child care crisis in Canada in 2017. Join their campaign to make high quality, affordable child care available to every family who wants it.

The federal government continues to commit only about 0.5% of Gross Domestic Product to child care — half of the internationally established benchmark of 1% of GDP set by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Right now, BC invests 0.29%.
