Commissioner Ward was excited to join the Public Policy Forum’s panel discussion for an important conversation on how access to child care impacts pay equity and pay equality, along with Paulette Senior and Dr. Dionne Pohler. The overarching theme of the discussion pointed to both supply and demand issues: the early learning and child care workforce (“the supply”), and the broader population, in particular working women (“the demand”), who depend on this sect​or for their own labour market participation.​​​​
