Research: Universal child care leading to increased birth rates in Quebec

from Felton Business News

Quebec's fertility rate bottomed out at 1.45 children per mother in 2000. It has rebounded since then, hitting a high of 1.73 children per mother in 2009, and sat at 1.59 children per mother in 2016, according to data released by Statistics Canada. In Ontario, by way of contrast, the provincial fertility rate fell from 1.49 to a record low of 1.46 over the same period. StatsCan says the difference can likely be chalked up to Quebec's universal, low-cost child care plan, which was enacted in 1997 amid panic about the decline in birth rates. more
