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.
