Child Care Now

CUPE has joined with many partners in advocating for a publicly funded national childcare program that is community-based, high quality, affordable, accessible and accountable. 

Currently, British Columbia has no publicly delivered child care; all child care centres are either private for-profit or private non-profit.

While there is no mandated role for the local/municipal level of government in regulated child care, several municipalities—the City of Vancouver in particular—have undertaken planning and funding roles. 

We are working to ensure that all families in British Columbia have the access they need to public child care. 

If you would like to join the campaign, contact the Child Care Coordinator.
