Losing Ground : Income Inequality in Ontario, 2000–15 - August 15
(Sheila Block, Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives)

Losing Ground : Income Inequality in Ontario, 2000–15
https://www.policyalternatives.ca/losing-ground
By Sheila Block
August 15, 2017

Abstract:
This paper examines 15 years of income inequality for families raising children in Ontario (2000 to 2015), comparing it with national data for context, and finds several disturbing trends. The data reveal that Ontario is becoming more polarized as middle and working class families see their share of the income pie shrinking while upper middle and rich families take home even more.

A Renewed Voice for Social Canada - July 2017
Proposal: A Canadian Council on Inclusion and Wellbeing
(
Michael Mendelson, Caledon Institute of Social Policy)

A Renewed Voice for Social Canada
http://www.caledoninst.org/Publications/Detail/?ID=1116
By Michael Mendelson (Caledon Institute of Social Policy)
July 2017

Abstract:
The federal government’s promised poverty reduction strategy must be more than a one-time commitment. It must provide for independent continuing appraisal and reappraisal of where we are and where we need to be, as the economy and society change. This paper proposes that the Government of Canada, as part of its poverty reduction strategy, put in place a new ‘institution’ provisionally called the Canadian Council on Inclusion and Wellbeing*. The paper describes the reasons and the historical roots for such a Council. It then details a proposed structure and financing for the Council.

* For more information concerning the Canadian Council on Inclusion and Wellbeing,

Families, households and marital status: Key results from the 2016 Census - August 2
(Statistics Canada)

Families, households and marital status: Key results from the 2016 Census
http://www.statcan.gc.ca/daily-quotidien/170802/dq170802a-eng.htm?HPA=1
August 6, 2017
The 2016 Census data show that, today, proportionally fewer households are composed of a 'mom, dad and kids' family and more people are living alone, as part of a couple without children, or as part of a multigenerational family.
(...)
The percentage of one-person households now at a high in Canada's 150-year history.
Living alone also on the rise in other countries : Canada's percentage of one-person households (28.2%) was similar to that of the United States (27.5% in 2012) and the United Kingdom (28.5% in 2014) but lower than that of many other industrialized countries.

Over one-third of households in France (33.8% in 2011) and Japan (34.5% in 2015) had one resident. The percentages were still higher in Sweden (36.2% in 2011), Norway (40.0% in 2012) and Germany (41.4% in 2015). Living alone has decreased among senior women in recent years. One-person households most common in Quebec and Yukon. Number of couples without children growing faster than those with children. There are more couples living with children than without in some regions of the country. Common-law unions still increasing. Highest proportions of common-law unions in Nunavut and Quebec. Multigenerational households are the fastest growing type of household. One in eight households in Nunavut is multigenerational.

Labour Force Survey, July 2017
http://www.statcan.gc.ca/dai-quo/cal3-eng.htm?sy=2017&sm=7&nr=1
Following two months of notable increases, employment was little changed in July (+11,000 or +0.1%). As the number of people searching for work edged down, the unemployment rate declined by 0.2 percentage points to 6.3%. This is the lowest rate since October 2008, just prior to the onset of the 2008-2009 labour market downturn.

An increasingly diverse linguistic landscape: Highlights from the 2016 Census
http://www.statcan.gc.ca/daily-quotidien/170802/dq170802b-eng.htm
Linguistic diversity is on the rise in Canada. Close to 7.6 million Canadians reported speaking a language other than English or French at home in 2016, an increase of almost 1 million (+14.5%) people over 2011. Moreover, the proportion of the Canadian population who speak more than one language at home rose from 17.5% in 2011 to 19.4% in 2016. In this context of increasing linguistic diversity, English and French remain the languages of convergence and integration into Canadian society: 93.4% of Canadians speak English or French at least on a regular basis at home.

http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/17/08/family-policies-and-weakening-male-breadwinner-model
2 Aug 2017 | International
New study provides a historical international comparison of 18 OECD countries' (including Canada) social policies and how they have reinforced or departed from the 'male-breadwinner' family model. 'Dual-breadwinner' or 'Adult-worker' family models tend to be supported by policies such as individual taxation, parental leave and high levels of public child care provision; authors follow the trajectory of the policies over time and across countries.
