The Ontario NDP's new campaign platform features significant investments in child care. The party has promised: to allocate public funds towards the expansion of not-for-profit and public ECEC; free child care for households with an income of $40,000 or less, with the remainder of user fees determined by a sliding scale dependent on income (average fee estimated at $12/day); fair wages for early childhood staff; and no change to existing subsidies. See page 12 for the child care section and page 89 for the fiscal plan.
