Hard data from the City of Toronto's own website shows that contrary to what many insist, there are numerous vacancies in institutional daycare facilities.
These vacancies have been present since 2009.
However, waiting lists contribute to the perception of a shortage because they aren't accurate: many parents' names stay on the daycare waiting list even after they have found a solution.
I talked to Andrea Mrozek of the Institute of Marriage and Family Canada about their new report,
"Is there really a daycare shortage?"
It busts many more daycare myths than just the one about "shortages."
