Moving Forward: Government of Canada signs Agreements-in-Principle on Early Learning and Child Care


These agreemeents follow the Government of Canada’s February 2005 budget commitment to invest $5 billion over five years to “enhance and expand high-quality developmental early learning and child care in collaboration with provinces and territories”. As announced in previous federal-provincial-territorial meetings on ELCC, this initiative will be guided by the QUAD principles: quality, universal inclusiveness, accessibility, and development.
