The purpose of the Government’s initiative is to recognize the importance of family support programs within a broader system of early learning and child care services in Ontario, under the banner of EarlyON Child and Family Centres.  As this happens, there will likely be some service shifts that will affect existing services. In the long run, FSIO believes this will have a positive effect, and families will have more equitable access to a consistent range of high services regardless of where they live.

In the interim, FSIO continues to advocate for the fair treatment of existing programs and staff.
