Economist: 'Child care is the chokepoint of the recovery'
The federal government signalled it would include a child-care action plan in its recovery priorities to support women returning to the workforce. The plan can’t come quickly enough as daycare centres are forced to shutter and the economic recovery stalls, argues Armine Yalnizyan, economist and Atkinson Foundation fellow on the future of workers. Yalnizyan says this marks a pivotal moment in designing an early learning and child-care system that serves the needs of the Canada’s economic future — one that the country cannot afford to fumble.
