Ontario Ministry of Community and Social Services, Toronto.
This document contains the English and French language versions of a report summarizing the results of a public consultation process on the subject of child care reform in Ontario, Canada. The process began with province-wide distribution of a public document called "Setting the Stage" which outlined a child care reform agenda as a focus for discussion. A total of 20 public meetings and 8 round table discussions were subsequently held throughout the province. The report begins with an executive summary that sketches the consultation process and provides an overview of the issues discussed during the consultation process. The first chapter summarizes the comments and suggestions made by participants in the meetings and discussions. Participants included parents, child care providers and managers, and academics. Participants also included individuals representing resource centers, the education sector, the children's services sector, the community group sector, local governments, organized labor, and the business community. The second chapter focuses on issues raised by the francophone and aboriginal communities. The third chapter briefly summarizes the round table meetings. (ME)
