Child care costs are crushing families, and Doug Ford is making it worse.
Ontario parents are drowning in the highest child care fees in the country, and they can’t wait any longer for relief from these mortgage-sized monthly costs.
The Ontario NDP are calling on the Doug Ford government to stop holding up a $10-a-day child care deal with Ottawa. Ontario is already Canada’s most expensive province for child care yet instead of rushing to bring families relief on child care fees, the Ford government is dragging its feet and refusing to file the paperwork — apparently unwilling to get a deal.
Other provinces were able to get a deal done with the federal government. Ontario is now the only province that hasn't sign on. Ontario families need affordable, public, and not-for-profit child care now.
Child care is just one of the many rising costs squeezing family budgets as the price of everything from milk to rent and hydro goes up and up.
Ontario parents with little ones deserve universal, public and non-profit high-quality $10-a-day child care. The NDP will continue to fight for $10-a-day childcare as part of its commitment to make life more affordable for families in our province.
