New funding formula must ensure long-term sustainability of $10-a-day childcare

May 16, 2024

QUEEN'S PARK — Ontario Greens Deputy Leader Aislinn Clancy released the following statement in response to news that the Ford government will implement a new funding model for the $10-a-day childcare program beginning in 2025.

“Ontario families and caregivers need better access to reliable, affordable childcare.

I’m glad to hear that the Ford government will implement a new funding formula to address the shortfalls many childcare providers are currently facing under the $10-a-day model.

But I urge the government to expedite the process so that childcare providers, caregivers and families aren’t left waiting for the cost savings, and stability, that they desperately need.

A revised funding formula must ensure the long-term sustainability of the $10-a-day program. I encourage the government to work with providers to ensure that the revised funding model adequately addresses the operational risks the sector is currently facing and provides pay equity for childcare workers.”
