Public Plan for Ontario Early Years Child and Family Centres

"Transforming Ontario's Early Years Child and Family Programs"

Ontario is moving forward on its commitment to integrate and transform its child and family programs.

Four existing programs, funded by the Ontario government, will be integrated. Ontario Early Years Child and Family Centres (OEYCFCs) will give families and children access to high-quality early years programs, as well as some programs that meet needs within their community.

This transformation also includes the creation of 100 more EarlyON centres as a result of a $140 million investment in Ontario's early years system. This funding includes $40 million through the Canada-Ontario Early Learning and Child Care Agreement. These new centres will be created across the province over the next three years.
