Excerpts from the report:

While Toronto continues to benefit from a well-educated workforce and a steady supply of students seeking higher education, educational opportunities for children and youth are being missed.

The number of children waiting to access subsidized child care in Toronto almost doubled from 4,162 in 2004 to 8,209 children in 2006. Given current funding levels, it is estimated that 72% of the city's low-income children (aged 0-9 years) do not have access to subsidized child care, restricting their parents' ability to work or attend school.
