Work-Related Child Care in Canada.
Mayfield, Margie I.
This study provides information on work-related child care programs and services in Canada today. In an overview of the subject, Chapter 1 discusses the criteria used to select programs for presentation in the study; defines work-related child care; and examines the increasing number of women in the workplace and the adaptation of the workplace to changing social conditions. Chapters 2 through 11 profile 21 child care programs, including: (1) on-site and off-site programs; (2) programs run by a consortium of companies; (3) information and counseling services; (4) health care and child care partnerships; (5) centers included in new building developments; (6) programs operated by government or crown corporations; (7) programs for special situations; and (8) services in which labor unions play a role. The profiles typically discuss the program's origin, facility, clientele, activities and services, personnel, administrative structure, funding, and future plans. Chapters 12 through 15 cover key issues in work-related child care and the future of child care. Appended materials include a list of 119 cited references; an 11-item annotated bibliography; and a reference list of several hundred items. (BC)
