For the past two years, the Canadian Labour Congress has been spearheading an initiative to address the impact of domestic violence in the workplace.  According to a recent cross-Canada survey conducted by the CLC and researchers at the University of Western Ontario, one in three workers has experienced domestic violence, and this violence follows them to work. Over 80 percent of victims reported that their performance was negatively impacted, and more than half said the abuse occurred at or near their workplace. Domestic Violence affects us all.

This is an exciting time to be part of the Vote Child Care 2015 campaign! With the hard work of activists and advocates, parents, ECEs and community members from across Canada, we see child care and family policy becoming a key election issue.  Now we build momentum. The goal of the Vote Child Care 2015 campaign is to firmly make child care an election issue, and take action to ensure the next federal government delivers universal, quality child care that is affordable for all families in Canada.
