On November 20, 2018 federal politicians heard firsthand about Canada's child care crisis and benefits of a universal system.
Nearly 100 child care advocates - parents, grandparents, educators, activists - were part of the largest lobbying effort on Parliament Hill for child care in over a decade. Organized by Child Care Now, the AECEO took part in over 60 meetings with MPs and Senators and shared personal stories, research and policy recommendations to create a universal child care system. Using the theme #ChildCareChampion we asked politicians to commit to moving the issue forward in their roles in government, within their parties, on committees and in the Senate.
