The CCAAC has joined with its coalition partners in a multi-year campaign, Rethink Child Care aimed at making public and non-profit child care a priority in the 2015 federal election.  The campaign is designed to engage Canadians in conversations about the difficulty of finding affordable quality child care. In the first year of this campaign Canadians from all walks of life are invited to participate in, or host a Kitchen Table Conversation. Be a part of this important process! Consider hosting a conversation or telling your story online at www.rethinkchildcare.ca. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter!


Findingqualitychildcare.ca is a great new resource for parents looking for quality child care that’s affordable and meets the needs of their families. Parents can find out about child care options in each province and territory, how to recognize quality and why it’s important, and how they can improve their chances of accessing high quality child care.



From grandparents to economists, working parents to student parents, health care professionals to social workers, early childhood educators to university professors - and so many others - everyone has a child care story.
