Child-care sector expects multi-year funding in March 22 federal budget

Federal budget Child Care
Diane Lebouthillier, Minister of National Revenue, and Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Family, Children and Social Development, make an announcement in the foyer of the House of Commons on Parliament Hill, in Ottawa last week. Child-care advocates have been told to expect a long-term funding commitment in next week’s budget, sources say, but some are already wondering whether it’s wise of the federal government to promise years of cash without first securing conditions from the provinces.

Sources expect a $5 billion commitment to child care over 10 years in next week’s federal budget, but some people in the field are concerned it’s too little, too late.
