Universal Childcare in the City?

5:00pm - 5:59pm

British Columbia faces a childcare crisis. How does this impact families in Vancouver and throughout BC cities? The City talks with Sharon Gregson of the Coalition of Child Care Advocates of BC and a former Vancouver School Board trustee about their comprehensive plan for an integrated system of early care and learning in BC - a publicly-funded, universal system. If adopted by the provincial government, the plan would provide $10/day full-time childcare to families and would be free for households with annual incomes less than $40,000. What would this mean for families struggling to find affordable childcare in Vancouver and beyond?
