Childcare, the 'Business Case' and Economic Development: Canadian Evidence, Opportunities and Challenges
Author: SUSAN PRENTICE
Published in IJED, Vol. 9 No. 4
This paper reviews the evidence, opportunities, and challenges associated with the business case for childcare in Canada. In Canada, as in the US, childcare is increasingly framed by the state, business spokespeople, and social actors through economic idioms. In Canada, the business case for childcare authorizes more policy attention and service development, as well as a higher public profile. Concurrently, the approach raises empirical questions, alongside policy and political concerns, about the capacity of the approach to promote a national childcare system.
