Working for Change: Canada's Child Care Workforce (2004)

This project updated the findings of the only Canada-wide sector study on ECEC. Building on findings from the 1998 report “Our Child Care Workforce” this project focused on:

  • Identifying the changes that had taken place since the 1998 sector study
  • Assessing the impact and implications of these changes on child care recruitment, retention, and recognition
  • Providing a forward-looking analysis for the sector to develop a strategy to address human resources needs in the child care sector in Canada

This project resulted in four reports:


Downloading, copying, and distributing CCHRSC resources

Despite the dissolution of the CCHRSC it is hoped that the CCHRSC`s research and tools will continue to be widely used to advance human resources issues in the sector. In turn, all organizations and individuals conducting research and/or offering ECE training, professional development, and other workforce development initiatives are authorized to download, copy, and distribute CCHRSC documents as needed, provided no fees are charged to end users and provided appropriate acknowledgements are made. Organizations and individuals are not authorized to download, copy, and distribute CCHRSC materials for profit. Any person or organization requiring clarification or consent to the use of such material should contact the CCHRSC Trust
