Editor's Edition: The role of child care after the she-cession

In the early months of lockdown 1.5 million women in Canada lost their jobs. As the recovery gained steam, those jobs were slower to come back, but employment levels have evened out amongst the sexes since then. Armine Yalnizyan, economist and Atkinson Fellow on the future of workers, explains why supporting female employment with a national early learning and child care program is vital to a robust economic recovery, and how household spending will be a drag on growth for all without it. This Editor's Edition delves into what Quebec got wrong and right with its subsidized daycare program, and what Canada can learn from it.
