Budget 2021 Statement

“I was incredibly pleased to see the commitment to Canada’s children from this government in Budget 2021. I am convinced this is both a unique and once-in-a-generation opportunity to make a real and measurable difference in the lives of Canadian families. Increased funding for Canada-wide early learning and child care with a focus on quality will help address the aggravated levels of inequality that have particularly pushed the burdens of COVID-19 onto low-income families. With a firm federal commitment and direction now set, our Foundation looks forward to continuing our engagement with the responsible federal ministers and their provincial and territorial counterparts to make this commitment a reality. Thank you to all involved - we, and generations to come, will mark this as the day Canada addressed one of its major challenges and took the opportunity to ensure success now and in the future.”

Hon. Margaret Norrie McCain, Chair
