a) Resolution on Early Learning and Child Care

Moved by Councillor Mullin,
Seconded by Councillor McFadden;

Whereas, investments in early learning and child care contribute positively to the early development and learning of children;

And whereas, the Region of Peel and Success By 6 Peel are working in partnership to enhance the quality and quantity of early learning and school readiness, and child care available in Peel;

And whereas, the federal government cancelled the Canada-Ontario Agreement on Child Care effective April 1, 2007;

And whereas, the provincial government has not fulfilled its commitment to fund Best Start and provincial funding for child care in Peel is $61 million less than the provincial average;

And whereas, Ontario is the only jurisdiction in Canada that requires municipalities to cost share child care services;

And whereas, as a result of reduced funding there will be 430 fewer children in Peel receiving child care subsidies over 2006-2007;

And whereas, families currently must wait 12 to 18 months for subsidized child care;

And whereas, the wait list for subsidized child care is expected to grow from 2,500 to 4,000 by 2010;

And whereas, lack of child care is a barrier to social assistance recipients accepting employment;

And whereas, as a result of reduced funding, 200 fewer children with developmental disabilities will receive services;

Therefore be it resolved, that the Regional Chair communicate with the Federal Minister of Human Resources and Social Development with a request to develop and fund a comprehensive national early learning and child care strategy;

And further, that the Regional Chair communicate with the Ontario Minister of Children and Youth Services to request:

  • an end to the requirement for municipalities to fund social services, including child care programs, from the property tax base;

  • full reinstatement of the Best Start program so more subsidized child care spaces and learning opportunities are available;

  • that the Province provide Peel with its equitable share of funding for child care services;

And further, that Regional Council provide support to Success By 6 Peel in its approach to the federal and provincial governments for improvements in the availability of child care spaces and early learning opportunities;

And further, that Regional staff work closely with Success By 6 Peel and the Best Start Network to inform MPs and MPPs of the specific impact in their ridings;

And further, that a copy of this resolution be sent to the Federal Minister of Human Resources and Social Development Canada, Peel area MPs, the Ontario Minister of Children and Youth Services and Peel area MPPs.
