A Training Strategy for the ECEC Sector in Canada (2007)

Building on the need for a consistent approach to child care training as identified in the Working for Change project (2004) this project focused on:

  • Documenting and defining current training approaches and needs in each province and territory.
  • Identifying and documenting innovative/best practices and gaps in training.
  • Increasing awareness of training approaches, innovative/best practices, and gaps in training among sector stakeholders.

This project resulted in six reports:

  1. People, Programs and Practices: A Training Strategy for the ECEC Sector in Canada
  2. Student Survey
  3. Faculty Survey
  4. Follow-up Survey (with participants of the 2004 Student Survey)
  5. Expert Focus Groups Summary Report
  6. Literature Review and Environmental Scan




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
