National Advisory Council on Early Learning and Child Care

The Government of Canada is investing in Early Learning and Child Care (ELCC) to help Canadian children get the best start in life and have a fair chance to succeed.

In support of this commitment, the Government of Canada has established a National Advisory Council on ELCC.

A public call for applications was held from August 15, 2021, to September 28, 2021. Following an open, transparent and merit-based selection process, a group of 16 members was announced on November 24, 2022, including a senior official from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC). It is composed of caregivers, practitioners, academics and advocates with diverse backgrounds.

The National Advisory Council on ELCC will provide expert advice and a forum for consultation to ESDC, in support of the Minister of Families, Children and Social Development, on issues and challenges facing the ELCC sector in Canada.
