RECOMMENDATION 13 &em; Early Childhood Development (page 145)

Pursuant to articles 18, 28, and 29 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Committee recommends that the federal government meet with provincial and territorial governments to help coordinate the establishment of measurable standards and guidelines for delivering early childhood development and child care to children across the country, matched by adequate funding. Consultations should begin immediately, with proposed solutions to be presented to the Canadian public by July 2009.
