June 17, 2024 Stakeholder Telephone Town Hall - Focus on ECEs

On Monday, June 17, 2024, Minister Jones of Jobs, Economy and Trade (JET: the new Ministry overseeing child care) hosted a town hall for the early learning and child care (ELCC) sector.

We have compiled some topics of interest from that meeting for Alberta early childhood educators (ECEs). See the topics of interest by clicking the button below.


At the bottom of that page, we have provided a form to submit any comments you may have about the town hall. These comments will be shared with Minister Jones and ministry staff at our regularly scheduled meeting.

AECEA remains committed to working with the Ministry on a comprehensive workforce strategy to achieve our vision where well-qualified, well-compensated early childhood educators are respected as professionals, valued for their important work, and supported in providing high-quality child care for Alberta’s children and families.
