Pathways to Early Childhood Education Credentialing in Canada (2010)

This project ran from February 2008 – April 2010. The focus of this project was to:

  • Clearly document and define ECE credentialing practices in Canada in order to address workforce retention issues and improve workforce mobility.
  • Document the necessary language skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) for ECEs and ECE administrators.

This project resulted in the following resources:

  1. Pathways to ECE Credentialing in Canada Main Report
  2. Occupational Language Analysis for ECE and ECE Administrators

* Note: A searchable “Online Guide” was also created but has been archived in light of the CCHRSC’s dissolution and lack of resources to keep it up-to-date. 


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
