Making life more affordable for Canadian families

On affordable child care and early learning, parents can’t afford to let Erin O’Toole’s Conservatives take us backward.

With agreements already in place in B.C., Nova Scotia, Yukon, PEI, Newfoundland and Labrador, Manitoba, Quebec, Saskatchewan, Alberta, New Brunswick, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut, the Liberal government is making real progress to ensure that all children from coast to coast to coast have equal access to the quality learning and care they need to succeed.

To help families balance the demands of work and raising children, the Liberal plan will:

  • Reduce fees for child care by 50 per cent in the next year;
  • Deliver $10 a day child care within five years everywhere outside of Quebec; and
  • Work with the province of Quebec to build on its world-class, affordable child care system, improve working conditions for educators, and create more spaces for families.

Let’s keep moving forward—for everyone. Will you support Justin Trudeau and the Liberal child care plan?
