New Resource--Canada Social Report, Caledon Institute of Social Policy

Launched in spring 2015 by the Caledon Institute of Social Policy, the Canada Social Report was inspired by the recent loss of data in Canada. 

Two areas – Welfare in Canada and Social Assistance Summaries – will continue to be regularly updated unless the federal government recommences the production and publication of this information.  Policy Monitors offers a searchable database of federal and provincial/territorial policy announcements which is updated monthly.  Municipal social program development in Canada’s six largest cities is summarized and updated three times a year in the Municipal Monitor. 

These elements are complemented by statistical data and descriptive information gathered from a broad range of sources.  The site will expand and evolve over time.  We welcome your feedback and your support of this vital and ambitious pan-Canadian initiative.
