Billions from the taxpayers for child care

Ottawa and almost all of the provinces signed a deal aimed at making child care more accessible, a plan that will ding taxpayers $7.5 billion over the next decade.

The Trudeau liberals will require provinces and territories to focus on regulated child-care operations serving children under the age of six and families with greater needs, including families that are low-income, Indigenous, single-parent, living in underserved communities or with children with disabilities.
