The City of Toronto is denying Torontonians their childcare subsidies on the basis of their immigration status. This is against Toronto’s sanctuary policy, which guarantees all residents access to all city services regardless of their immigration status.

Parents have been told - with no notice - that their Toronto childcare subsidy was being cancelled because of their status. Now they are left scrambling to find an alternative in the most expensive city in the country for childcare.

Some bureaucrats think that people with precarious immigration status are the least likely to fight back. Racist policies that exclude undocumented residents is an easy way to make cuts and get away with underfunding critical services. We won’t allow this to happen.

Over 17,500 children are on the affordable child care waitlist. We need child care for all.

Contact your local Councillor right now and demand the city uphold its sanctuary policy. https://goo.gl/UbKp3s
