The Early Childhood Education and Care Workforce

Kerry McCuaig and Tara McWhinney

Year of publication:


A follow-up to Policy 4 Women’s Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC), the ECEC Workforce policy briefing note delves into an industry where women outnumber men 24:1 and face a reality of low wages, poor working conditions, and little job security. All while caring for and educating Canada’s most precious citizens—our children.

Once again, Policy 4 Women researchers present practical steps our governments can take to strengthen the ECEC workforce and improve conditions. A recommended read for policymakers, women’s organizations, ECEC workers, and parents!
