Our Federal Petition receives nationwide support

by Carrie Schoemer September 02, 2017

TEECC is proud to announce that our federal petition received 1158 signatures with supporters from every province and territory.

We are calling upon the Government of Canada to commit that by 2026, all children across Canada will have access to adequate early years programming through a licensed child care provider that is affordable for their family, a framework agreement will be in place with provinces and territories to achieve this by 2018, and that in the interim, the government should offer immediate relief for middle-income families by raising the child care expenses deduction upper limit to $28,000 per year, in line with actual child care fees in the City of Toronto.
