Ontario outlines plan to add 45,000 new licensed child care spaces.


The province is stepping up to look at ways to make child care more affordable for families announcing $1.6-billion plan to create 45,000 licensed child-care spaces.

The new framework aims to increase access to high-quality child care by funding those new spaces, providing more funding for licensed home child care and offering more fee subsidies for families who need them.

Experts will be appointed to lead an affordability strategy and the province will study how it can better support early childhood educators and child care staff with compensation, hiring, retention and training.
