Do we need a national child care system? Livestream conversation

The federal government’s plan to implement universal $10 a day child care has generated a national debate about how to best support working families and care for children as Canada rebuilds from the pandemic.

Join us for a live-streamed discussion of the issues with some of Canada’s leading policy thinkers to examine this important topic in-depth.
