Budget leaves us last

According to analysis of the 2017 federal budget in Policy Options, the Liberal government’s 10-year funding for child care will leave Canada in last place of the 35 member-countries of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

This is because government continues to commit only about 0.5% of Gross Domestic Product to child care — that’s half of the internationally established benchmark of 1% of GDP (which, by the way, is exceeded by many other nations)
