Our projects produced research and developed strategies and tools to meet the needs of the child care workforce and achieve related goals. Click on the titles of our projects for more information.

Occupational health and safety legislation regulates the standards of workplace health and safety with the aim to prevent workplace accidents, injuries and diseases, and outlines consequences for breaches of those standards. It details responsibilities of employers, supervisors and employees.

Ninety-six per cent of child care workers in the regulated child care sector are female.  Since the ECEC sector is female-dominated, gender equity is not about strategies for encouraging more equal representation of women. It's not even focused on increasing representation of women in managerial ranks.

In  2011, Human Resources and Skills Development Canada announced changes to the Sector Council Program, including the elimination of core funding for all councils by March 2013.

The day-to-day work of the CCHRSC is carried out by a dedicated six-member team.

Merriam-Webster defines “demographics” as the statistical characteristics of human populations such as age or income. An example of a demographic collected in human resources is gender, which may include all employees within a particular job, e.g., Early Childhood Educator. Other demographics include age, length of service and educational level.
