Ontario endorses Tom Mulcair’s affordable childcare plan

Working with the provinces to create more spaces and reduce parents’ costs is central to Tom Mulcair’s plan for Affordable Childcare and we warmly welcome Ontario’s endorsement of our proposal.

We congratulate Andrea Horwath and the Ontario NDP for bringing this motion forward and working together with all parties to get the Ontario Legislature to endorse the NDP’s plan that would create affordable, accessible and high quality childcare spaces at a cost of no more than $15/day.

Sadly, in the nine years since Stephen Harper first promised to create 125,000 childcare spaces, Conservatives not only broke that promise, but under their watch parents have seen their childcare costs skyrocket. We believe it’s long past time parents got a break and look forward to working with the provinces to make this a reality.
