The Ontario government has failed to provide the funding or the plan needed to ensure kids can return to schools and child care centres in a safe and supportive way.

Therefore, we the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to implement an immediate action plan that includes:

  • Paid sick leave and parental leave in any modified return
  • Immediate funding to stabilize the child care sector to prevent fee increases and layoffs
  • Increased funding for teacher hiring, bussing, school repairs and cleaning
  • Expanded funding for childcare and schools for more, smaller classes
  • Real collaboration with frontline education workers, students, parents and school boards through a COVID-19 recovery school advisory group
