National child-care plan targets families in need

Ontario and other provinces will be able to spend $7 billion in new federal child-care dollars on programs that are high quality, accessible, affordable, flexible and inclusive, according to a 10-year funding framework to be signed by Ottawa and the provinces Monday.
But unlike Ontario’s historic commitment last week to build a universally accessible child-care system for all parents who need it, Ottawa’s funding for the next three years is targeted to the neediest families.
