Media Advisory - Report supports expansion in public and non-profit child care
In early 2008, the City of Toronto commissioned Dr. Gordon Cleveland, a well-known economist and child care expert, to examine the issue of corporate, for-profit child care and its potential expansion in Toronto, and analyze the factors that contribute to differences in quality in Toronto's child care centres.

On Monday, May 12, Dr. Cleveland will present his report, entitled “If it don’t make dollars, does that mean that it don’t make sense? Commercial, Non-Profit and Municipal Child Care in the City of Toronto,” to the Community Development and Recreation Committee.

The report, which has already been endorsed by the Children’s Services Advisory Committee, is available online at:

Date: Monday, May 12
Time: 9:30 a.m.
Location: City Hall, 100 Queen St. W., Committee Room 1
