“I want people to remember that child care in our province has been ignored for a very long time,” she says. “It wasn’t a priority. There was no co-ordinated strategy. Funding was limited to providers. Subsidies for families were tough to access with low return, and children were the ones to suffer. Lack of quality child care impacts mental health and relationships, causes isolation and financially, it’s a struggle. Sometimes those impacts can take years to recover from.”
