Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care starts to organize

Announcement Date: 1982

In the spring of 1981, groups concerned about child care start to develop a strategy to get more government funding and action for day care. The Ontario Federation of Labour and Action Day Care hold public forums across Ontario which results in the formation of an ongoing coalition in 1982 made up of 17 member organizations.  The goals of the newly formed Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care include promoting more and better daycare, increasing public awareness about needs, preparing a brief to the Ontario Cabinet and organizing a lobby of Ontario MPPs.
