TORONTO, April 11, 2008 — A new report on child care reveals the smallest increase in regulated child care spaces in some years. Entitled Child Care Space Statistics 2007, the report was produced by the Childcare Resource and Research Unit (CRRU).
The CRRU is a policy research institute that focuses on early childhood education and care (ECEC) and family policy.
The report presents provincial and territorial data on the number and breakdown of spaces in regulated child care centres in Canada as of March 31, 2007.
NUPGE works to contribute to a national framework of services to benefit all Canadian workers.
