Childcare Workforce Committee- Bill 191

This Private Member’s Bill, if passed, would seek to establish the Early Years Workforce Strategy Advisory Committee.

Care providers and families have shared their concerns regarding the future of childcare in Ontario. Ensuring we have a robust, well-paid, well-trained workforce is a crucial first step to creating a system that works for childcare providers and families.

The committee will make recommendations on how to support registered early childcare educators and the childcare and early years workforce.

To see Bill 191: Childcare and Early Years Workforce Strategy Advisory Committee Act

The advisory committee would immediately get to work on addressing some of the biggest challenges facing workers in the childcare sector, including:

  • Increased wages
  • Minimum work standards
  • Career advancement opportunities
  • Recruitment strategies
  • Immigration considerations
  • Enhanced collective bargaining
