Toronto First Duty

Toronto First Duty (TFD) began in 2001 with an ambition to showcase the directives from the first Early Years Study, authored by the late Dr. Fraser Mustard and Margaret McCain. It began with a simple but compelling assumption: it is only through public policy that permanent and sustainable change takes place.

This third and final report on Toronto First Duty is the story of how scientific evidence was turned into community action and ultimately public policy. Mustard and McCain told us why early education is a must for every child. Toronto First Duty shows us how it can be accomplished.
