In this pre-budget release, Child Care Now proposes expanding the child care funding plan outlined in the 2017 federal budget, to spend 1% of Canada's total GDP on child care by the tenth year. The advocacy group recommends $1 billion in federal funding be transferred to the provinces/territories to be used within the upcoming fiscal year on evidence-based approaches to building high-quality child care systems, accessible to all children and families.
