Petition to the President of the Treasury Board

  • The Treasury Board has an existing policy regarding workplace day care centres;
  • Workplace day care centres serving federal public servants are at risk and some have closed because this policy has not been respected;
  • The grant from Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) to pay the rent for the day care centre at the Guy Favreau Complex in downtown Montréal will end January 1, 2017;
  • The centre will be forced to close without the grant;
  • The day care centre at the Guy Favreau Complex has been caring for the children of federal employees for 30 years; and
  • The Public Service Alliance opposes the cutbacks and urges that this essential service be maintained.
We, the undersigned, federal public servants, parents using the Guy Favreau day care centre, former clients of the centre, grandparents, Canadians who want a government that respects its own policies , call upon the President of the Treasury Board to respect and apply the Treasury Board’s policy on workplace day care centres in order to ensure the continued operation of the centre at the Guy Favreau Complex.
To urge PWGSC and the departments accommodated at the Guy Favreau Complex and nearby to continue to provide the grant that pays the rent for the day care centre at the Guy Favreau Complex.
To make the work-life balance of federal employees a priority by maintaining a quality day care service that is currently operating in a federal workplace.
