Help build public child care
In their October 2004 throne speech, the federal Liberal government said “the time has come for a truly national system of early learning and child care."

But we will only get the system Canada’s children deserve if federal and provincial governments get the building blocks of the new system right from the start.

Public child care: act now to build it right... from the start

It's about time. After two decades of waiting, we're getting close to a cross-Canada child care system. The closer we get, the more important it is that we all speak up for the best possible care. In the next few weeks, Federal Social Development Minister Ken Dryden and his provincial and territorial counterparts will start building our new child care system. The decisions the ministers take could make or break the system. We need to make sure they build it right from the start. Please send your message today. It only takes a minute, and it will make a difference.
