Contact Your Reps: Template Letters

These template letters have been drafted to support ICPs and parents who wish to contact their representatives about their childcare concerns. Help us make our voices louder!

Template for ICPs:

To Whom it may concern;

I am an independent home childcare provider in Ontario with 5 invaluable daycare spots within my community. I am discouraged and frustrated with the announcement by the Ontario Liberals on June 6 2017 pledging $1.6 billion dollars into 45000 new childcare spaces.

I would like to see the government support the most popular, diverse, and inexpensive form of childcare in our province, independent childcare, rather than putting valuable tax payer money into a system we already know is broken. I want to see the government license independent childcare providers, and utlilize existing spaces that are self-sustaining and accessible, instead of sinking money into a system that doesn’t recognise these gems within our communities. We need to license independent providers, who open our homes and our hearts to providing quality care to children in a family environment, without having them sacrifice our autonomy and entrepreneurship.

I hope I can count on you to advocate for your constituents.

Thank you for your time,
