Future of Toronto's child-care funding still uncertain even after latest provincial climbdown
from Globe and Mail
The provincial government is partially walking back its planned cut to child-care subsidies for Toronto in 2020, leaving unclear what will happen the following year. The change of course by Queen’s Park will leave the city short $2.8 million next year, Toronto board of health chair Joe Cressy said, instead of the $15 million that had initially been announced. But even the smaller cut means 186 fewer subsidized child-care spots for low-income families, unless Toronto can fill the funding gap, in a city with thousands of people on the list for one.
