Ontario will increase the minimum pay for primary school teachers in most registered child care centres to $23.86 per hour starting next year, from the previous increase of $20.
In November, Education Minister Stephen Lecce unveiled his childcare workforce strategy, which included raising the wage floor, a move that the government claims will elevate Ontario's ECE starting wages from among the lowest in the country to among the highest.
It is anticipated that Ontario will have established 86,000 new positions under the national child-care system by 2026.
An agreement Ontario made with the federal government in joining the $10-a-day scheme included a salary baseline of $18 per hour in 2022. The floor will increase to $23.86 per hour in the next year and going up by $1 per hour each year, up to $25.86 in 2026.
According to the Canadian government, all Canadian families should have access to excellent, reasonably priced, and flexible early learning and childcare.
92% of licensed childcare centres and home day-cares have already reduced childcare centre rates by 50% for families with children, and by 2026, the average daily fee is expected to drop to $10.
The strategy not only aims to provide high quality and affordable childcare for the development of children, but it also promotes gender equality by enabling more parents, especially mothers to enter the workforce and achieve economic security.
This would boost Canada's economy, encourage more women to pursue careers, and ensure that every Canadian kid has the greatest possible start in life.
