The Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014 (CCEYA) came into effect on August 31, 2015. The Minister of Education is required to conduct a review of the Act after five years.  

To support the review, the Ministry is consulting with families and child care partners this summer to gather input on ways to enhance the early years and child care system.

The Ministry is launching two surveys online - one for families and one for child care sector partners - to support the review of the CCEYA and to guide future child care planning for the province. The survey results will help improve the system to better meet the needs of families and child care providers.

The surveys will be available on this website: https://www.ontario.ca/page/consultation-strengthening-early-years-and-child-care-ontario from July 7, 2020 to July 21, 2020 and they will take approximately 15 –20 minutes to complete. The surveys include a number of closed-and open-ended questions on various topics related to early years and child care.

Individuals and organizations can also feel free to send submissions to cceya_consultation@ontario.ca by July 31, 2020.

Following the public consultation period, the Ministry will release a public report with respect to the review once the feedback has been reviewed and analyzed.
