Abstract

This paper examines the municipal role in child care based on interviews, surveys, workshops, conferences, and focus groups with officials from Ontario municipalities. The findings reveal that the planning and development of human services is shared between the provincial and municipal levels of government but provincial legislation regarding child care must include the appropriate allocation of responsibility to the municipal level in order to ensure that the service is institutionalized.
