« Quebec’s new subsidized childcare system, allegedly more universal and more equitable than before, was supposed to provide for improved childhood development and better work-family conciliation. However, analysis of the results shows, on the contrary, that principles of universality and equity are far from being met in practice. The model is increasingly costly and heavily restricts the choices open to thousands of families. In some cases it even causes them financial loss. Whatever the aims of family policy – assistance to families, work-family conciliation, or social and cognitive development starting at infancy – there exist other more effective ways of achieving them. By providing greater choice to parents, Quebec would move closer to other countries with highly developed family policies. » (p. 4)
