About the $10 A Day Plan

In 2010, the Coalition of Child Care Advocates of BC and the Early Childhood Educators of BC released a draft plan for an Integrated System of Early Care and Learning in BC. The draft responded to BC’s implementation of full school day Kindergarten for 5 year olds and the deepening child care crisis facing BC families.

For over 6 months, thousands of British Columbians engaged in a dialogue about our draft plan. This dialogue helped shape and inform our finalized Community Plan for a Public System of Integrated Early Care and Learning.

The Plan, released in April 2011, offers a concrete, innovative and ambitious way forward and provides a framework for significant and lasting change.

Since its release, the Plan has been enthusiastically endorsed and supported by a growing number of individuals and organizations. These voices are calling on government to adopt and implement the Plan so that children, families, communities and our economy are served by a high quality, universal, democratic and accountable system of early care and learning.

We are asking you to think about how you can engage with colleagues, parents and the public in conversation and education about the $10aDay Plan during this week.  

A tool kit has been developed to support you in the week of action that includes:


Socio-Economic Impact Analysis of the $10aDayChild Care Plan for British Columbia 

New Economic Study Highlights Net Benefits of Proposed $10aDay Child Care Plan
for Governments and Employers, even in the Short Term.

Renowned private-sector economist Robert Fairholm led this in-depth analysis of the economic effects of implementing the $10aDay Plan — confirming that it will generate sufficient government revenues to pay for
the government spending required to build and operate the system.

“Full implementation of the $10aDay Plan will have a significant and positive impact on GDP and create 69,100 jobs, even in the short term” states Fairholm.

The study shows that solving the current child care crisis is much more than simply an affordable option for governments — the $10aDay Child Care Plan will provide higher economic returns to BC than other government investments.
