Main political parties in canada are gearing up for elections. They are making new promises to woo the voters and strengthening the middle class seems one of the top priorities for these parties.  Last day, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau  promised help for parents who need more child care before and after regular school hours. He pledges $535 million/year for ‘more accessible child care for families’.

Trudeau’s announced that a re-elected Liberal government would create up to 250,000 more spaces for before- and after-school child-care programs was a notable departure from a stance he took on the issue less than two weeks ago.

The information on their website stated,”You shouldn’t have to choose between making ends meet and caring for your kids. That’s why we’re going to make before and after-school care more accessible and affordable.”

“We’ve already created thousands of new pre-school child care spaces and now we’re going to create up to 250,000 more for kids under 10. And if you work overtime, late shifts, or multiple jobs you’ll also be able to get the help you need because a portion of these new spaces will provide more care around the clock.”

Liberals promised lowering fees by 10% across the board and If you’re a family of four with two kids in Ontario, putting more than $800 back in your pocket every year.

They pledged to make life easier for families by making sure access to high quality, affordable child care solutions.
