The aim of this paper is to contribute to critical discussions across Canada about government initiatives to increase the role of postsecondary early childhood education (ECE) programs in addressing recruitment and retention issues in the ECE workforce sector. While specific information about the initiatives is provided the paper seeks to explore what might be their intentions and implications from the perspective of faculty in ECE post-secondary programs.
