About the survey
The British Columbia government – with support from the Government of Canada – has a 10-year plan to increase the quality, affordability and availability of child care. This includes an ‘Early Care and Learning Recruitment and Retention (ECL R&R) Strategy’.

Early Childhood Educators of BC (ECEBC) is coordinating an evaluation of this strategy and asked the non-profit Social Research and Demonstration Corporation (SRDC) to help with the evaluation. The survey was developed in collaboration with sector representatives, including us. The survey will be repeated in 2021 to measure changes over time.
