Vote Child Care

The Association of Early Childhood Educators Ontario is a non-profit, charitable organization, and a non-partisan group; as such we do not favour one party over another, nor do we promote any one party or encourage our members to vote a particular way. We do have a vested interest in considering the potential implications of child care policy decisions and we are providing this information to encourage thoughtful consideration, meaningful dialogue, and informed voting decisions.

In collaboration with Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care, we've prepared an Election Readiness kit to support our members with the federal election. This readiness kit will provide you the tools to encourage your colleagues and the families you serve to vote in the federal election with Child Care and Child Care workers in mind.

In keeping with Child Care Now's Affordable Child Care for All Campaign message, we encourage members to consider the following ideas during the election.
