The crisis is caused by the limited availability of child care services resulting in long wait-lists; high costs which limit access for poor and middle income families; privatization of child care services, leaving the services to the dictates of the market; continuous rise of unregulated centres, which can endanger children's health and safety as we have seen recently in Alberta; and the subtle discrimination against, and expulsion of, children with disability or special needs in some centres.
