The Ontario government could cut funding that our deserving Early Childhood Educators receive.
The OCBCC has launched a petition to continue the Provincial Wage Enhancement Grant to Registered Early Childhood Educators and child care workers in licensed child care. This funding provides $2 per hour in wage support to many educators and it is critical that it continues. Funding has not yet been confirmed beyond March 31, 2019. The future of the grant is in the hands of the provincial government and will be decided by the Ontario Budget this spring.
