OHPE Bulletin 460, Volume 2006, No. 460

Today's feature article is on Kids Grow Ontario's project to develop a "consistent and sustainable way to measure and monitor the well-being of Ontario's children and young people." In the introduction, the writers note, "There is no comprehensive picture of the state of Ontario's young people and families in their communities, and no one organization, association, sector, or ministry that produces reports of this scope. It is a concern that in Ontario we have very little of this very important information available and that we do not have the kind of monitoring system needed to track the developmental health of young people."
