Queen’s Park says Ontario could face a shortage of early childhood educators's Profile



Queen’s Park says Ontario could face a shortage of early childhood educators in the coming years.

Officials say that by 2026 the province could be short 8,500 ECE workers.

Daycare costs have already begun falling toward a goal of ten dollars a day, through an initial round of rebates.

Officials say the province will need more than 14,000 registered ECE’s to address a need for child care.

Meantime, questions are swirling around job retention.

In 2022, the province raised the wage floor to $18 an hour, which is expected to rise to $25 over the next several years.

The Association of Early Childhood Educators of Ontario have called for the floor to be raised to $30 hourly.
