Madam Speaker, I am rising today to bring attention to National Child Day, which will take place on Sunday, November 20.
We all have a role to play in ensuring that children reach their full potential as the future of our country.
Unlike the Liberals, the Conservative government has delivered real results to ensure that we are supporting Canadian children and families. In fact, we have made the largest investments in Canadian history.
This year alone, we will provide over $6 billion in early childhood development and child care funding. We have also introduced the universal child care benefit, giving $2.6 billion annually to 1.5 million families. We have implemented tax measures that have put more than $3,000 back into the pockets of every Canadian family. This makes a real difference for Canadians in these tough economic times.
Our government values the important contribution that families make to our country to improve its well-being.
I encourage all Canadians to participate in National Child Day on November 20.
