Child Care is worth more!

Child Care is Worth More!

The following is from the Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care (OCBCC):

Our WORTH More Campaign is working! The Ontario government has clearly heard from the community that they MUST raise child care wages –  It’s crucial that the new Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care (CWELCC) system is built right: with better pay, better quality and better access. We need a funding formula and workforce strategy that provide decent wages and working conditions for educators and a serious, public plan to expand child care spaces. We need action, NOW!

If you want to help push this campaign over the top, send a message to your MPP at and join our #WorthMore Day of Action on Tuesday, June 20th to demand action on the workforce crisis and tell the Ford government that child care is worth MORE! Here are some planning tools, media tools, sample letters, sample communications, posters, flyers and infographics to support your actions. We would also love to hear about your advocacy actions to inspire others across the province and showcase your amazing work. Please take a moment to share your event plans with us in this form.

We are so excited for this opportunity to come together to talk to families, community members and decision makers. Let’s raise our voices for better access for families and decent work for educators!

In solidarity,
