Flexible child care in Canada: A report on child care for evenings, overnight and weekends, emergencies and ill children, and in rural areas

Martha Friendly, Gordon Cleveland and Tricia Willis.
April 1994

Farmers and other rural workers often find it impossible to arrange reliable, convenient child care to meet their needs.
