Toronto has the highest childcare fees in Canada and the longest waitlists for childcare in the country.
Toronto’s licensed childcare system only serves 20% of the families who need it.
These facts clearly indicate the need to increase investment in childcare, not cut it.
We call on Premier Doug Ford to reverse his harmful cuts to childcare and increase investment in public and nonprofit licensed childcare in Ontario.
We call on Mayor John Tory to increase public investment in childcare in order to reduce waitlists and increase the number of childcare subsidies and spaces in the City of Toronto.
We call on our local York South-Weston City Councillor to stop voting against childcare funding and support initiatives to make childcare affordable for all.
