« Like other Canadian health, education, and social services, child care is under provincial/territorial jurisdiction. As this publication describes, each of Canada’s twelve provincial/territorial jurisdiction has a child care program that includes legislated requirements for operation of services and a scheme of funding arrangements, legislated requirements for the provisions of care, methods and schedules of monitoring and enforcing the requirements, and the range of services offered. The development of health, social and educational programs in Canada have almost always been influenced by the federal government. The Government of Canada’s role has ranged from a history of molding the shape of elementary and secondary eduaction. Historically, the Governement of Canada has had only an indirect policy in child care although its role as a funder of child care or child care-related programs has been somewhat larger. » (p. i) Each provinces and territories is represented by the following rubrics: legislation, provincial official responsible for child care, child care services, children with special needs, aboriginal child care, provincial context, space statistics, funding, administration, municipal role, history of child care, recent developments and key provincial child care organizations.
