Fresh off the press: CCAAC 2016 Federal Budget Submission

CCAAC 2016 Federal Budget Submission

February 19, 2016

The Child Care Advocacy Association of Canada (CCAAC) welcomes this opportunity to share our 2016 federal budget priorities with the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance, and with Canadians.

In order to fulfill election promises, we call on the federal government to prioritize child care infrastructure investments in Budget 2016 to deliver affordable, high quality, flexible, and fully inclusive child care for Canadian families.

In the short term (Budget 2016), two dedicated streams of federal public investment are required:

  1. $100 million in annual funding to begin to empower and resource Indigenous communities to design, deliver and govern services that meet their needs and aspirations, consistent with related recommendations from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and;
  2. $500 million in federal transfers to provinces and territories. The resulting provincial and territorial child care initiatives must reflect research, evidence-based policy, and best practices in service delivery as set out in the government’s election platform.
