This short video highlights the absurdity of the current situation faced by families in Canada. As it stands now, the majority of parents must rely on a patchwork of largely unregulated childcare, with no guarantee of quality.
Parents often scramble to find a spot, and must sometimes rely on family, friends and a host of other inadequate solutions. Even when families are fortunate enough to find a licensed child care spot, it can cost them nearly a quarter of their take-home pay. In fact, child care costs in Canada are among the highest in the word.
The current situation is unacceptable and PSAC is asking members and the broader public to add their voice to our call for Justin Trudeau to take action.
