Feedback was collected through an online survey from June 15 to July 15, 2020.

MLA Tracy Allard also led virtual talk sessions with child care operators, key interest groups, and industry associations.

The Child Care Consultation Report provides a summary of what was heard during the engagement. Thank you for your input.
