Regulatory oversight of childcare services to be reviewed
The President of the FIPEQ-CSQ wants to meet with
Minister of Families Francine Charbonneau
Montréal, May 22, 2015. – The President of the Fédération des intervenantes en petite enfance
du Québec (FIPEQ-CSQ), Kathleen Courville, has just written to the Minister of Families,
Francine Charbonneau, to request a meeting in order to discuss her intentions with regard to
reviewing all regulatory oversight of regulated and unregulated childcare services in Québec.
From the outset, the President of the FIPEQ-CSQ reminded the Minister that regulated and
subsidized childcare services are already subject to extensive oversight and many regulations.
“In this context, we have questions about the intentions of your Ministère regarding this issue.
We wish to meet with you to discuss the matter and gain insight into what this might entail for
our regulated and subsidized childcare services,” wrote Kathleen Courville.
Private daycare gives cause for serious concern
Ms. Courville also stated she was aware “that unsubsidized home childcare is beyond the reach
of government oversight. However, we are concerned about the process that will be used to
regulate them and the costs involved for the public purse, especially since the government has
already earmarked $557 million in tax credits for private childcare in 2013 alone,” the union
leader pointed out.
Input from childcare practitioners
Furthermore, Kathleen Courville implored the Minister to take the time to hear the opinions of
those directly concerned, that is, the childcare practitioners who perform the work, before
making any changes to the regulations. “I have no doubt that as Minister of Families, you wish
to have the most comprehensive picture possible of the situation before making decisions that
will benefit all of the childcare providers involved. In that spirit, obviously, input from our
members cannot be ignored,” affirmed the President of the FIPEQ-CSQ.
Kathleen Courville recalled that the FIPEQ-CSQ is the most representative union of childcare
providers in Québec.
The Fédération des intervenantes en petite enfance du Québec (FIPEQ-CSQ) represents close
to 14,000 home childcare providers and some 2,000 childcare centre employees. It is the most
representative union in Québec’s childcare sector.
The CSQ represents nearly 200,000 members, including 130,000 members working in the field
of education. It is Québec’s largest union organization in the field of education and childcare.
The CSQ is also active in the health and social services, childcare, municipal, recreation,
culture, community and communications sectors.
