It’s now confirmed there will be a federal election on October 21st and we’re hoping you’ll help us to make Child Care visible as an important election issue in your community!
The Coalition of Child Care Advocates of BC along with the Early Childhood Educators of BC and The Waitlisted Project are supporting province-wide “Stroller Brigades for Child Care” and we’d like you to be a part of the fun.
Did you know: child care funding is managed by the provinces, but a portion of that funding comes from the federal government? Together we need to ensure that those elected on October 21st support the $10aDay Plan by protecting the $50 million BC now receives annually for child care – and committing to grow that amount over time.
On October 5th in communities across the province families and educators will be holding ‘Stroller Brigades’ to make child care visible. Check the list to see if there’s a Stroller Brigade in your community – and if not plan to organize one with your friends and family. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We're happy to lend a hand.
So far, big and small Stroller Brigades are being organized in: Comox, Campbell River, Nelson, Squamish, Victoria, Penticton, Vancouver, Kelowna, Vernon, Parksville, Terrace, New Westminster, Port Alberni and Quesnel.
Stay tuned for more details and mark your calendar for a Stroller Brigade on October 5th!
