Daycare fees dropping in some provinces with help of public policy: study

OTTAWA -- Daycare fees have dropped - or barely inched up - in some Canadian cities in what might be early signs of the influence of federal child-care money, a new survey says.
The fifth annual survey of child care fees from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives being released Thursday says that fees for full-time, regulated child-care spaces have risen faster than inflation in 61 per cent of cities reviewed.
