Child care advocates were calling on social development minister Ken Dryden to move ahead with the promised national child care program, this week, but urged him to involve child care workers and the unions that represent them.

We will be talking to the federal government about developing a universal, accessible program that is directly funded and not based on subsidies to parents like the patchwork of programs we have today, Kira Heineck, executive director of the Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care (OCBCC) told a press conference this week.

CUPE has launched an online action to push Dryden into action on a national child care program.
