The Manitoba Federation of Labour supports the joint action by the Manitoba Child Care Association and the Child Care Coalition of Manitoba to convince the government to establish a Commission on Early Learning Child Care. Currently the government of Manitoba is conducting two public consultations – Manitoba’s Child Care Consultation and the Starting Strong Starting Early consultation on early childhood development.
The two organizations and their allies, including the MFL, want the government to establish a process for transforming Manitoba’s child care system. They say:
“We are looking for a wide range of groups and individuals to sign-on to our recommendation that Manitoba establish a Commission on Early Learning and Child Care for Manitoba, with the mandate and resources to develop and propose a multi-year plan for early learning and child care.”
If you or your organization can add weight to this campaign, contact Susan Prentice, Childcare Coalition of Manitoba.
