A Canadian Perspective: Implementing Tiered Licensing in the Province of Ontario

Faced with growing caseloads for their child care inspectors, the province of Ontario recently implemented a “tiered” approach to allocating licensing resources. Under the new system, centers that have consistently demonstrated high levels of compliance (Tier 1 and 2) are rewarded with longer duration licenses and abbreviated inspections, while lower-performing centers (Tier 3) receive additional ministry oversight and support. In this session, you will learn about the data-driven tier assessment model, the methodology used to develop the abbreviated inspection checklist and early evaluation results.
