Proportionate Universality

2015 Human Early Learning Partnership

For many years there has been a debate about the relative value and impact of universal versus targeted programs and services in addressing children’s health and development issues. In reality, when it comes to the early years in Canada generally and BC specifically, many types of programs and services for young children aged 0-6 are in short supply. A system incorporating the principle of proportionate universality for children in their early years would create and maintain a platform of universal supports organized in a way that would eliminate the barriers to access that affect populations with the highest need.
