City needs more child-care spaces: Minister

The province launched it's first public consultation Monday night for Ontario's child care strategy.

THUNDER BAY -- The first public consultation for Ontario's child care strategy was launched in Thunder Bay Monday night.

The town hall meeting follows the announcement by the province of creating 100,000 new licensed child care spaces.

To start things off, the government is holding public consultations across the province. The aim is to gather feedback from parents on what they would like to see.

The Associate Minister of Education Indira Naidoo-Harris said there's a need for more child care spaces in the city.

Thirteen consultations will be held throughout the month. Moosonee, Toronto, Kingston and Milton are some of the cities included.
