(By John Stapleton, Open Policy Ontario)

Ontario

New social assistance asset test welcome news
http://openpolicyontario.com/new-social-assistance-asset-test-welcome-news/
June 16, 2017
The 50 year experiment forcing welfare recipients and low income persons with disabilities into financial destitution finally appears to be over. In Charles Sousa’s Budget 2017, asset limits for single welfare recipients will be raised from $2,500 to $10,000 for a single person and to $11,000 for a lone parent with two children. Persons with disabilities will have their asset limits raised from $5,000 to $40,000 for singles and from $7,500 to $50,000 for couples. The amount families will be able to donate to family members receiving assistance will go from $6,000 a year to $10,000.
(...)
In the four years since 2013, policy analysts learned what the province of Quebec and Alberta and the states of Ohio, Illinois and Virginia had known for some time – that keeping recipients of social assistance in complete destitution does not save money.

2. The introduction and evolution of child benefits in Canada - April 27
(By Allan Moscovitch and Nick Falvo)

The introduction and evolution of child benefits in Canada
http://behindthenumbers.ca/2017/04/27/introduction-evolution-child-benefits-canada/
April 27, 2017
By Allan Moscovitch and Nick Falvo

Child benefits have significant potential to reduce homelessness and the need for emergency shelter beds by putting more money into the hands of low-income parents. They also can (and do) reduce child poverty, though not always as much as governments claim. And because they do not carry the same stigma as other forms of poverty-reduction initiatives (such as social assistance and social housing), they’re also popular among voters—certainly more popular than social assistance benefits for adults. Many elected officials are therefore more eager to create and enhance child benefits than they are to spend on other forms of poverty-reduction. Since they were first established child benefits in Canada have changed significantly in their intention, their recipients, and their method of delivery.

Here’s an eight-step guide to that evolution.
(Click a number below to access more info on any item for more info)

1. Legislated in 1944, Canada’s first federal Family Allowance made its first tax free payments in 1945 to all women with children under the age of 16 who attended school.
2. The Family Allowance was the first major benefit program in Canada extended to Indigenous peoples—but it was also used to assimilate them.
3. The first major federal government changes to the Family Allowance occurred in 1974.
4. In 1992, the federal government eliminated the Family Allowance altogether.
5. In 1997, under the terms of the Social Union Framework Agreement between the federal government and the provinces, the federal government created the National Child Benefit Initiative.
6. The Universal Child Care Benefit (UCCB)—which looked remarkably like the Family Allowance that had been canceled 14 years earlier—was introduced by the Harper Conservatives.
7. The 2016 federal budget—the first under a Justin Trudeau government—contained important provisions for child benefits.
8. There are other tax expenditures for children.

National Aboriginal Day - Celebrate Canada days 2017
https://www.canada.ca/en/canadian-heritage/campaigns/celebrate-canada-days/aboriginal-day.html
In cooperation with national Indigenous organizations, the Government of Canada designated June 21 National Aboriginal Day, a celebration of Indigenous culture and heritage. This date was chosen because it corresponds to the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, and because for generations, many Indigenous groups have celebrated their culture and heritage at this time of year.

7. Bill C-27 : An Act to amend the Pension Benefits Standards Act, 1985
(
First Reading : October 19, 2016)

According to the Hamilton Spectator:
"If enacted, Bill C-27 will have serious negative implications for existing private and
public-sector defined benefit (DB) pension plans in every jurisdiction in Canada."

-------------------------------------

It appears that federal and provincial/territorial retirees and superannuates (like me and my wife, both retired from the federal government) may be expected to contribute more than their fair share to the Canadian economic recovery if Bill C-27 becomes law. Monsieur Premier Ministre, please honour your promise (on the campaign trail last year) to protect the financial security of the retired members of your civil service and those who have yet to retire.

-------------------------------------

Bill C-27 : An Act to amend the Pension Benefits Standards Act, 1985

First Reading, October 19, 2016

Table of Contents:
- Summary
- Coming Into Force
- Explanatory Notes

This enactment amends the Pension Benefits Standards Act, 1985 to provide a framework for the establishment, administration and supervision of target benefit plans. It also amends the Act to permit pension plan administrators to purchase immediate or deferred life annuities for former members or survivors so as to satisfy an obligation to provide pension benefits if the obligation arises from a defined benefit provision.

Bill C-27: Another erosion of Canadian pensions
http://www.thespec.com/opinion-story/7109779-bill-c-27-another-erosion-of-canadian-pensions/
By Malcolm Buchanan
Bill C-27 An Act to amend the Pension Benefits Standards Act, 1985 was quietly introduced in the House of Commons on Oct 19, 2016. The Bill was introduced without notice or consultation with Canadians, pensioners, or unions, and contains measures that directly contradict election promises to improve retirement security for Canadians. If enacted, it will have serious negative implications for existing private and public-sector defined benefit (DB) pension plans in every jurisdiction in Canada. Bill C-27 represents a dangerous and immediate attack on future and current retirees defined pension plans.
(...)
Instead of proceeding with Bill C-27, the federal government should actively encourage all private-sector and public-sector employers to introduce, maintain and enhance workplace defined benefit pension plans. That's the real solution for retirement security.

From the
National Association of Federal Retirees
:
https://www.federalretirees.ca/en

On May 15, 2017, the National Association of Federal Retirees submitted a brief to Finance Canada on our members’ concerns with Bill C-27. In the brief, we discuss the complexity of pensions; the consequences and implications involved in asking people to “surrender” the defined benefit pension they’ve earned – not to mention the fundamental unfairness in attempting to do so; the issues with “informed consent”; labour relations concerns that may arise; and realities of the demographic that will be most impacted – seniors. There’s still time to let your Member of Parliament know you’re concerned with Bill C-27. Add your voice to our Honour Your Promise campaign, and plan to meet your MP soon using the toolkit available.

Honour Your Promise - Act now to stop pension cuts for retirees!
https://www.federalretirees.ca/en/Advocacy/Honour-Your-Promise#newmode-embed-239-520
The federal government introduced legislation in October 2016, Bill C-27, which could allow Crown corporations to change good defined benefit pension plans into target benefit pension plans. This is wrong. A deal is a deal.

TORONTO - Ontario is looking at ways to make child care more affordable for families in the province, announcing a framework the minister in charge calls a step toward universal child care. A new strategy aims to increase access to high-quality child care by funding new spaces, providing more funding for licensed home child care and offering more fee subsidies for families who need them.

the weekly Canadian Social Research Newsletter:

Whenever I add a link to any page on the Canadian Social Research Links site, I copy it to this What's New page. At the beginning of each week, usually on Sunday, I copy the content directly from this page into the Canadian Social Research Newsletter and send it by e-mail to subscribers. I also create an HTML version of the newsletter (see the links immediately below), which I post to my site. The HTML version of the newsletter also serves as an archive for "old" content from this What's New page.
