About this document...

Early childhood education and care in Canada 2012 is the ninth edition of similarly collected information developed by the Childcare Resource and Research Unit (CRRU). These reports on cross-Canada data on early childhood programs have been compiled and published about every two years since the early 1990s. The Childcare Resource and Research Unit’s ECEC in Canada reports, together with the data available in Public investments in early childhood education and care in Canada 2010 (a document developed by CRRU and published by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC, Government of Canada) are consistent in format, content and methodology.

Thus they form a body of information that is both comparative across Canada and longitudinal over a 20 year period. This makes it possible to identify trends and developments over time —information useful for research, policy-making and advocacy.

This report, published in 2013, considers early childhood education and child care (ECEC) in Canada during the period 2011 – 2012, using cross- Canada and longitudinal data.
