Poll shows parents want government to create more childcare spaces, not just hand out cash
from The Province
A new survey shows a majority of people understand the acute shortage in licensed childcare spaces in B.C., and they would prefer the government solve the problem rather than give parents a small tax credit to cover childcare costs. The online survey by Insights West was completed last December, and found that 82 per cent of respondents believed the "$10-a-Day" plan — a social program that would increase the number of affordable childcare spaces and improve wages and training for early childhood educators — is "beneficial" for the province.
