Building Women’s Equality in Child Care Policy (WEP)

Building on the assumption that child care is an important component of the achievement of women’s equality, the purpose of this project is to participate in shaping federal child care policy that is sensitive to women’s economic, social and political concerns.  Through this project, the CCAAC facilitates the engagement of women in public policy dialogue with relevant governments (Federal, Provincial, Territorial, Municipal, First Nations, and Tribal Councils) to promote the implementation of a developmental child care system that supports the diversity of women’s roles as mothers, caregivers, and workers and is accessible to all Canadian children.  This project is supported through the Government of Canada through Status of Women Canada. (Completed in October 2007)
