No one should have to put their newborn on a waitlist.
There is an affordability crisis in childcare across the country. Families are struggling to find childcare spaces and get on waitlists – before their children are even born. Costs are unaffordable in many cities. That’s why Alistair and the NDP have a plan to:
- Work with other levels of government, Indigenous communities, families and childcare workers to ensure affordable care for all Canadians.
- Introduce legislation that enshrines Canada’s commitment to high-quality, public childcare in law.
- Invest $1 billion in 2020 and grow that investment annually.
