A new economy needs child care

The Report of the Nova Scotia Commission on Building Our New Economy, otherwise known as the Ivany Report, makes "an urgent call to action" for the province's future. While we also see the need for fundamental change in Nova Scotia, we have many concerns about this report, ranging from its narrow definition of the problem, to its selective research, to its dubious and sometimes contradictory solutions. But here, we would like to focus on one glaring omission -- the role that social policy and in particular, early learning and child care (ELCC) play in economic development. (author abstract)
