A skilled and competent child care workforce is critical to providing high quality child care that benefits children’s early development and learning. The challenge for the sector is to increase the skills and education of the child care workforce to improve the quality of early learning and care that children experience.

Statutory is defined as something “fixed, authorized, or established by statute”. Therefore the benefit packages that Canadian employers offer are designed to enhance the well-being of their employee base, and will contain both statutory and discretionary benefits. Statutory benefits are some of the benefits also referred to as “employer paid” benefits.
