Excerpted from press release "Supporting Canada's children and families":

"Today, Federal, Provincial, Territorial Ministers Responsible for Social Services (excluding Quebec) reached agreement on a framework for improving access to affordable, quality, provincially and territorially regulated early learning and child care programs and services. This initiative builds on the September 2000 First Ministers' commitment to improve and expand early childhood development programs and services."
