To ensure every child has a child care spot, three major barriers must be addressed: the labour crisis in the sector, the lack of infrastructure and the threat of privatization.

These are three different barriers, but they have one common solution: sufficient funding from the federal government.

The 2024 budget is an opportunity for the government to reaffirm its commitment to make the Canada-wide Early Learning and Child Care system a reality by investing 17 billion dollars over the next three years.

CUPE represents more than 12,000 members in early learning and child care services. We advocate for a fair recognition of the work they do and an improvement of their working conditions and benefits. And we also advocate for all our members and all workers who are waiting for a spot for their child so they can fully contribute to their community.
