« This survey of 2,012 Canadians conducted in May 2005 finds that ordinary Canadians prefer childcare provided by parents to day care provided by other caregivers; Canadians prefer day care offered by relatives to non-profit day care centres, and when given a choice, Canadians prefer both these systems to either subsidizing day care centres or a national care system. The survey asked Canadians what type of child care arrangement they would prefer, how they would instruct the government to spend money earmarked for childcare, and whether they would be open to exploring new alternatives in child care policy such as paid parental leave in the first three years of a child’s life. » (p. 12)
