Want to study law, or engineering, or architecture? Depending on where you live in Canada, tuition for all of those and many more is less expensive than a year of infant child care fees for young families.
Hard to believe, but true.
And parents of infants don’t get the luxury of saving for 18 years to pay for it. Not to mention that wait lists for child care are often longer than wait lists for post-secondary programs.
As Sharon Gregson of the Coaltiion of Child Care Advocates of BC recently summed up: The (child care) crisis is at a point where it boggles the mind that government is not dealing with this issue, or they think that by partially funding a few more spaced… it in any way alleviates the crisis.
