A new report says child-care costs have increased across the country, but some regions are feeling the pinch much more than most. The study by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives tracks the price of child care across 27 Canadian cities and three age groups -- infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers. Report co-author David Macdonald says some provinces have capped fees for child care. (Median costs for infant care in Toronto -- which is more than 17-hundred dollars a month -- are noticeably higher than they are in second-place Newfoundland and Labrador which still charges a hefty 14-hundred dollars.)
