Among developed countries, CANADA RANKS LAST on child care. And the BC government’s failure to address the crisis is keeping us there.
BC is even worse than the Canadian average for:
Parent Fees - too high, and increasing at rates that outpace inflation. For infants and toddlers, they are now the second highest in the country.
Access - Only 18% of children under 12 in BC have access to a regulated child care space (Canadian average 20.5%).
Public Investment - second lowest in Canada at $2,207 annually per regulated space (Canadian average $4,070/year).
