This year at Co-operatives First we’re focused on helping groups start childcare co-operatives to help meet the need for childcare across the western provinces.

To help us guide this initiative, we are privileged to have an advisory committee that consists of today’s guests: Sue Delanoy and Dr. Susan Prentice. These two brilliant experts have studied and advocated for the childcare field for many years, and we had an engaging conversation about what the childcare landscape looks like in Canada, the most recent government policies that intend to address the childcare shortage, the vision they have for what the childcare system should look like in Canada, and how co-operatives can help.

This is a fascinating and engaging conversation about childcare in Canada that helps us understand how things stand, and what can be done to make it better for everyone.
