Submitted to the Government of Ontario on January 24, 2020, the AECEO's submission calls on the government to: 

  1. Commit to continuing the $2 Wage Enhancement Grant (WEG) and Home Child Care Enhancement Grant, and immediately extending the WEG to include RECEs and program staff in EarlyON Centres.
  2. Reverse the $48 million in cuts to child care and increase operating funding to keep pace with capital expansion.
  3. Develop and implement a publicly funded province-wide annually indexed wage scale with a $25/hour minimum wage for RECEs and commensurate compensation for early years staff, a benefits package, including 7 paid sick and 10 job protected personal leave
