About the AECEO's Professional Pay & Decent Work Campaign
Since 2013 the AECEO's Professional Pay & Decent Work Campaign has been successfully engaging and organizing hundreds of RECEs, early years staff, parents and community members in Ontario to advocate for all children and families to have access to quality affordable early years and child care programs where RECEs and staff are well-supported with professional pay and decent work. The overarching goal of this campaign is to build and sustain an ECE led movement for decent work. The campaign is a project funded by the Atkinson Foundation Decent Work Fund. Our project partners include the Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care (OCBCC), Institute for Change Leaders (ICL) and Atkinson Centre for Society and Child Development.
