Report: Non-standard work and child care in Canada: A challenge for parents, policy makers, and child care provision
from Childcare Resource and Research Unit
A new report exploring the experiences of Canadian parents who work non-standard hours concludes that a stable, core system of quality, affordable, accessible, inclusive services is required as a foundation in order to tackle the challenges of providing more difficult-to-sustain non-standard hours services in a major way. It makes a series of recommendations for tackling non-standard hours child care issues at multiple levels to ameliorate challenges faced by families and service providers. The research notes that high rates of non-standard work have characterized the Canadian economy for well over a decade and are predicted to increase.
