This paper documents and records the roots of modern child care policy in Canada, the beginnings of the Campus Community Co-operative Day Care Centre (CCCDCC), the rise of community-based child care in Ontario and the first wave of child care advocacy. The goal was to create an accurate and publicly engaging document to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the co-op, which was founded by a group of feminists in 1969.
