Myths and Questions about Homelessness - May 1

Myths and Questions about Homelessness
http://homelesshub.ca/blog/myths-and-questions-about-homelessness
By Malaika Taylor
Canadian Observatory on Homelessness
[ http://homelesshub.ca/COH ]
May 01, 2018
There are many myths and stereotypes that people believe about homelessness. This misinformation is problematic, as it further contributes to the stigmatization of a population that is already marginalized. In order to appropriately tackle the issue of homelessness and create a society where individuals feel comfortable accessing supports, these myths must be deconstructed and understood to be false by the general public.

Below are six of the many misconceptions about homelessness, compared to the realities for people who are experiencing homelessness.
Click the COH link above for more info on the six myths below.
1. Myth: People choose to be homeless.
2. Myth: People experiencing homelessness are lazy.
3. Myth: All people who experience homelessness are addicts.
4.Myth: People experiencing homelessness should just find a job.
5. Myth: There are plenty of adequate services and supports to help those experiencing homelessness.
6. Myth: Property values will go down if we let homeless shelters into our neighbourhoods.
Overall, the myths that exist about homelessness are generalizations of a more complicated reality....

Food Bank Nations : Poverty, Corporate Charity and the Right to Food
(By Graham Riches
, 2018)

Food Bank Nations:
Poverty, Corporate Charity and the Right to Food
ABSTRACT:
https://www.routledge.com/Food-Bank-Nations-Poverty-Corporate-Charity-and-the-Right-to-Food/Riches/p/book/9781138739758
By Graham Riches, 2018
204 pages, $39.95 (paperback), $150 (hardback)
In the world’s most affluent and food secure societies, why is it now publicly acceptable to feed donated surplus food, dependent on corporate food waste, to millions of hungry people? While recognizing the moral imperative to feed hungry people, this book challenges the effectiveness, sustainability and moral legitimacy of globally entrenched corporate food banking as the primary response to rich world food poverty.

Submission for the development of a poverty reduction strategy for BC- March 2018
(BC Poverty Reduction Coalition

British Columbia : Submission for the development of a poverty reduction strategy for BC (PDF - 31 pages)
http://bcpovertyreduction.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/BCPRC_SubmissionPRConsultation_Mar15_2018.pdf
March, 2018
The BC Poverty Reduction Coalition is an alliance of organizations that have come together to raise awareness about poverty and inequality in BC and improve the health and well-being of all British Columbians through the call for a comprehensive solution that addresses the systemic causes of these problems. We congratulate the government for your commitment to implement a poverty reduction plan for BC. After almost a decade of calling for action to address the root causes of BC’s high poverty rates, it is good to see a government paying attention to the evidence.

Support Those Who Aren’t Employed
http://bcpovertyreduction.ca/learn-more/plan-for-bc/
The current income assistance system in BC is fundamentally broken. People in desperate need are being denied assistance, and if lucky enough to navigate all the structural and administrative barriers to welfare and have their application accepted, they are subjected to a life of “survival,” struggling to meet the most basic needs of shelter and food.

Priority Actions:
Significantly increase welfare and disability rates to the Market Basket Measure, and index them to the cost of living.
Increase earnings exemptions, and remove clawbacks and arbitrary barriers that discourage, delay and deny people in need

Minimum wage in Quebec goes up to $12 per hour today, but labour groups say it's not enough of an increase and will keep many female workers trapped in poverty.

Investing against evidence

2 May 2018 | International
This book is part of UNESCO’s Education on the Move series, created to provide policy-makers, educators and other stakeholders with analyses of topical issues in ECEC, written from the perspective of experts in the field.

2 May 2018 | Europe
This paper highlights the importance of government funded child care, not only for women to return to the workforce, but also for their wages, impacting the gender pay gap. Germany is used to illustrate this point, as East Germany has more public child care compared to the West and this has positively impacted women's earnings over time.

This PowerPoint presentation, given at a seminar in London on 8 February 2018 organised by the Early Childhood Degrees Network, takes a critical view of OECD's International Early Learning Study, arguing that it has suffered from a democratic deficit since its inception and raises a number of causes for concern.

Here, diverse strategies addressing policy, urban planning, funding, and community engagement, among others, are discussed in order to better connect children to nature.

March 27, 2018
Whitehorse – The Yukon Anti-Poverty Coalition (YAPC) is pleased to release a final report highlighting the cost and availability of nutritious food in communities throughout Yukon. Community researchers in Carcross, Carmacks, Dawson City, Faro and eight other communities measured the cost of 67 foods included in the Revised Northern Food Basket in June 2017 to help estimate the costs of a basic, healthy diet for Yukon residents.

NOTE by Gilles:

My HTML editing software, Dreamweaver 4, gave up the ghost a few days back - Dreamweaver 4 now crashes my system each and every time I try to edit page 2 of my federal government links (the link immediately above). I suppose I should count myself as lucky that DW was not affected by the occasional quirks and quarks and crashes of a tool that chugged along for over 18 years. Now, though, I've decided for my own peace of mind to NOT get all riled up and flailing my arms around when Dreamweaver starts getting all persnickety. I`ll continue to monitor new releases for social research content to include in my newsletter, but I`ll no longer keep an archive of all older links to relevant StatCan content. The above page ("...fedbkmrk2.htm...") will still be an active hyperlink to an accessible file, but I won't be updating fedbkmrk2.htm any longer.

2025 10 Apr 2018 | Ontario
The Ontario Equal Pay Coalition sets out twelve areas of action for the Ontario government to fulfill its obligation to equal pay for equal work-- a human right and a long-standing issue of systemic discrimination. Provision of affordable and accessible child care, increased access to unionization, enforcement and expansion of pay equity legislation and a provincial commitment to a decent work agenda are outlined in this vision for closing the gender pay gap.

11 Apr 2018 | Europe
Focus groups with migrant parents in Belgium were the basis of this study, to analyze the parent/preschool educator relationship. Discussion showed a democratic deficit; with communication tending to be a one-way flow of information from educator to parent, with assumptions made about desirable social and cultural capital, as well as the purpose of preschool and conceptions of care. Insight into parents' wishes for involvement in the preschool experience and the barriers they face are discussed.

11 Apr 2018 | United States
This study tracked the gender wage gap among American parents and found gender-based discrepancies in earnings were most pronounced during years of child birth and the year after; continuing, albeit at a slower rate, for several years until children were school-age. The gender wage gap was seen to be less for women without children and for women who had their children before 25 or after 35. Data is presented in a variety of ways

4 Apr 2018 | Ontario
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/18/04/ontario-budget-plan-care-and-opportunity
The 2018 Ontario Budget was released this week, allocating a historic $2.2 billion over three years to child care. This includes financing free preschool for children aged 2 and a half until kindergarten beginning in September 2020, while $1 billion would be allocated to reducing fees and increasing subsidies for infant/toddler spaces. Significantly, by 2020 the government would introduce a wage grid for early years staff in licensed centres, home child care, and Early ON family resource programs.

Children's rights Wiki - from CRIN
http://wiki.crin.org/mediawiki/index.php
The Children's Rights Wiki assembles all information about children's rights in every country in one place. The purpose of the project is to make the huge volume of information that exists on children's rights more accessible, assist children's rights advocates in identifying persistent violations, and inspire collective action. This is a web-based, multi-lingual and interactive project.
