By signing below you are showing support for the professional pay for professional work campaign and will receive updates! 

The overarching goal of this campaign is to address the long-standing issue of low and inequitable compensation for early childhood educators (ECEs) in Ontario. We are calling on the government to fund professional pay for all ECEs in Ontario regardless of where they work. Professional pay should reflect ECEs’ specialized training, the value of their work and their participation in continuous professional learning.

No ECE should have to work for less than a professional wage and all ECEs should be recognized for their professional qualifications and practice.

For more information on the campaign please see http://www.aeceo.ca/professional_pay_for_professional_work

    I am a RECE. I have worked in the field for over 25 years. I am still being offered jobs with a hourly rate of 13 to 17 dollars per hour. Chldcare has been operating on the backs of hardworking, dedicated, highly trained professionals like my self who are paid like we were doing high school summer jobs. As a single mother these wages put me at the poverty level while I work tirelessly as a professional ECE to provide a solid foundation for children who will be the decision makers of tomorrow. The contribution I have made to society through my life time of work is significant yet I am left with little to spare when pay day arrives. When will there be just pay for our service in the field of Early Childhood Education. ECE professionals, who change the world for the better by caring and educating the children in Canada, need to be paid professional wages once and for all, reflective of the important work that they do to benefit all of society in both the short and long term. We make life possible.
