The Progress of Canada's Children 1997

The Progress of Canada's Children 1997 is the second in a series of annual reports from CCSD that monitors the well-being of children, youth and families. This 68 page report contains a wealth of data and information organized into two main sections. The first section assess important inputs into child well-being such as economic security, physical safety and community resources. The second section reviews how children and youth are faring by assessing outcomes such as learning achievements, health status and youth employment.

Katherine Scott, who wrote the CCSD report, concludes that despite politicians protestations, they have done little to help Canada's children. On the contrary, by slicing government spending, they have

removed some resources from the hands of both poor and middle-class children, she said in a Globe and Mail article (Dec. 9/97)
