    NEW MEMBER RECEPTION TO FOLLOW MEETING





    • 22 Nov 2018
    • Parliament Hill

    November 20 is the international day of the child! For this year, CFUW in collaboration with Child Care Now would like to invite members of CFUW Ottawa for a Child Care lobby day on Parliament Hill (Nov. 20)!

    The goal is to reunite on the same day many child-care advocates to meet with their elected official and ask for a publicly funded, high quality, accessible, affordable and inclusive child care, a cost-effective policy that will benefit women, children and our economy.

    Among the CFUW participants Grace Hollett, National President and Kathryn Wilkinson, VP Education. Join them in the CFUW delegation!

    On November 19, all participants will be invited to participate in a briefing session in Ottawa at 233 Gilmore (Board Room) around 5:30-6 (to be confirmed).

    We invite you to please extend this invitation to your members. To register for the lobby day on November 20 please contact both me at cfuwadvocacy@rogers.com and c.c. Robin Jackson cfuwed@rogers.com  by November 2nd, 2018.

    Moreover, to get up-to-date on the child care situation in Canada, we are also having a webinar next week on October 24 at 4:00PM EDT. We invite you to tune in to learn more about the issue. To register please contact Zindzi at cfuwgen@rogers.com
