This questionnaire is intended for any parent in Canada who is (or whose partner is) expecting a baby or who is on paid or unpaid maternity/parental leave.

The Childcare Resource and Research Unit (CRRU) is an early childhood education and child care (ECEC) policy research institute based in Toronto. We are surveying Canadian parents who are now expecting a baby or are on paid or unpaid maternity/parental leave about child care arrangements. We expect this research will lead to better understanding about how parents arrange child care. The results of the survey will be published in 2017 in a report that will be publicly available on our website at 

We very much appreciate your filling out this online survey as soon as possible, which should take no longer than 15 minutes. All the information you provide will be anonymous; you cannot be identified in any way. It will be used only as group (aggregate) information and only for this project.

Please pass the survey link on to other new or expecting parents.  If you have any questions or would like to be notified once the report is published, please contact Bethany Grady at:

Thank you very much for participating.
