Check out our Child Care Pledge for candidates in the upcoming municipal election!
We will be asking candidates to pledge their support for child care, and we will update this pages with the candidates who do.
When you speak to a councillor candidate, ask them about child care. How are they planning to implement 10$/day child care? How will they make sure new centres are built in the child care deserts of our city? How will they work to improve the wages and working conditions of ECEs and child care workers? Have they signed the Child Care Pledge?
The next Ottawa City Council will have the opportunity and the funding to build an equitable, thoughtful child care system in our city, with enough high-quality, and affordable spaces. It will take a lot of work, and City Council must take the lead.
Let’s work for an Ottawa where children are seen and heard!
