Canada's participation in the second round of reviews

Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version

The Canadian Review followed the protocols designed by participating
countries. A national Background Report, answering a set of questions
common to all the Country Reviews, was commissioned by Human Resources
Development Canada. Following its completion, a team of four
international ECEC experts came to Canada in September 2003. Based on
their site visits, interviews, and review of the Background Report and
other documents, the expert OECD team prepared a second report on ECEC
in Canada – the Canada Country Note – identifying key strengths and
weaknesses and making suggestions for progress.
