Our Testimonies

Tell us your story! Have you witnessed your daughter’s or son’s desperate search for licensed childcare? Have you been lending a helping hand to provide care for your grandchild because of expensive child care fees?

Or, have you just simply seen too many years go by without governments delivering on affordable, accessible and high quality childcare across the country!

We invite you to share your testimonies, and help raise awareness of the impacts the child care crisis has on families, women, children and seniors! Help us tell why Universal Child Care is so important!

Here are a few questions you may wish to answer as you share your story with us in the benefit of supporting Universal Child Care: 500 words max.

Lastly, please provide your name and age (optional.)
