Parents and Educators- Have your say… on the pending changes to Ontario's child care system

Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014

The Legislature recently passed new legislation to modernize and strengthen Ontario's child care system and improve oversight in both the licensed and unlicensed child care sectors. The Child Care Modernization Act, 2014 was passed by the Legislative Assembly and received Royal Assent in December 2014. Once proclaimed, the Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014 will go into effect and the Day Nurseries Act will no longer be used.
