On Tuesday October 14, 2014 the New Democrates revealed Thomas Mulcairs Affordable Child Care plan.

The NDP's plan would build on the successful childcare model from Quebec. Research from Economist Pierre Fortin shows that affordable childcare in Quebec helped 70,000 mothers join the workforce and boosted the economy by $1.75 for every dollar invested by the government

Mulcaire plans to create or maintain one million affordable childcare spaces across Canada. The goal is to ensure parents don’t pay more than $15 a day for a childcare space.
