May District Child Care Advisory Meetings
In December 2012, the Provincial government presented its new child care funding framework and formula that will allow municipalities to allocate funding based on local needs. The City will consult with its partners and stakeholders to develop a local funding model that will continue to meet Toronto's Child Care Service Plan Principles. The City is proposing three phases of consultation over a two-year period. At the District Child Care Advisory meetings in May, participants will provide feedback re: draft funding principles and evaluation criteria, which will guide the development of funding model options.
