ACORN leaders applaud proposed ONDP $12/day child care boost

$12/day child care was a key promise revealed in the Ontario NDP’s platform, released earlier this week. ACORN leaders welcome this proposed investment, which would see free, licensed child care for families earning below $40,000 with sliding scale fees averaging $12/day for everyone else.

The platform also proposes immediate increases to ECE wages and a phased 51% increase in affordable child care spaces across the Province.
