Fee Subsidies Are Not the Answer
This study estimates the short-to-medium term benefits of implementing the proposed $10aDay Child Care Plan in BC. Private-sector economist Robert Fairholm led this in-depth analysis, confirming that it will generate sufficient government revenues to pay for the government spending required to build and operate the system.
“Full implementation of the $10aDay Plan will have a significant and positive impact on GDP and create 69,100 jobs, even in the short term” states Fairholm.
In this study, economist and CCPA public interest researcher Iglika Ivanova shows how BC can implement a $10 a day child care plan, either as a federal-provincial partnership or as a BC-only program. The province can easily afford it, and it will provide substantial benefits for families, communities and the economy.
