Macaulay Child Development Centre Welcomes Federal Budget 2021
Toronto, ON – April 20, 2021
“Child care is the key to the recovery of children and family development and women in the workforce”
Macaulay Child Development Centre welcomes the investments in child care nationally, toward a sustainable system of early learning and child care. The federal budget presented by Canada’s first woman Minister of Finance demonstrates a long awaited commitment toward supporting communities in need and marginalized families disproportionally affected by this pandemic. The issues of affordability and accessibility of child care is being addressed through the $30 billion funding investment announced yesterday. This investment will not only affect women in the workforce, but will also support racialized communities, and children needing quality early learning services.
