Your voice matters. It's tough to stress just how important it is for you, as an ECE, to support your provincial association and have a voice on issues of importance to you. We depend on the size and strength of our membership to allow us to engage, plan and advocate for system changes and further public investment in the ELCC sector.

Recruiting participants (ECEs and ELCC owners/operators) for research project

AECEA, ECELC and the University of Alberta are recruiting participants in the early learning and child care (ELCC) sector for a research project, Alberta Early Learning and Child Care Workforce Stability Project.

This research aims to understand the needs of early childhood educators (ECEs) as well as early learning and child care (ELCC) owners and operators in Alberta to inform wage grid recommendations and workforce retention initiatives.

They are looking for ECEs who want to share their knowledge, experience, and insight through an interview, and ELCC owners and operators who want to participate in a small focus group. See the recruitment posters below for more details.

To participate, email Mary-Frances Smith at maryfra1@ualberta.ca.
