Policy (1974): Meeting Ontario Day Care Needs


This 1974 Brief to Ontario MPPs critiques the Birch policy statement and makes recommendations including that the Ontario government recognize the overwhelming need for supervised day care (both day nurseries and private home day care) in this province by
a) expanding future provincial day care budgets by considerably more than the 1 — 2 per cent above the rate of inflation referred to in the June 4th statement,
b) providing sufficient financial assistance to all families who cannot independently meet the costs of supervised day care, and
c) providing adequate financial assistance to municipalities and non-profit organizations to encourage and enable them to meet day care needs in their communities.
