2. Using Data to End Homelessness in Calgary / L’ utilisation de données dans le programme visant à mettre fin à l’itinérance à Calgary - April 8
(Nick Falvo PhD)

Using Data to End Homelessness in Calgary
http://calgaryhomeless.com/using-data-to-end-homelessness-in-calgary/
April 8, 2016
By Nick Falvo, PhD
On March 9, I spoke on a panel in Professor Susan Phillips’ Policy and Program Evaluation course at Carleton University. This is a required course in Carleton’s Master of Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership program, and one of the program’s main themes is that non-profit organizations face strong expectations to demonstrate their effectiveness. Thus, future leaders in the sector will need to be both knowledgeable and competent in this regard.

http://calgaryhomeless.com/l-utilisation-de-donnees-dans-le-programme-visant-a-mettre-fin-a-litinerance-a-calgary/

Par: Nick Falvo, PhD
Le 9 mars, j’ai fait une présentation sur l’itinérance adressée aux étudiants du séminaire d’études supérieures de Madame Susan Phillips à l’Université Carleton. Ceci est un cours obligatoire du programme de Master of Philanthropy and Non-Profit Leadership, et l’un des principaux thèmes du programme est que les organisations à but non lucratif sont confrontées à de fortes attentes pour démontrer leur efficacité. Ainsi, les futurs dirigeants du secteur devront être, à cet égard, à la fois informés et compétents.

April 4, 2016
Ontario is making changes to the Ontario Drug Benefit (ODB) Program that will allow more than 170,000 seniors to become newly eligible for the low-income seniors program. As a result, they will save approximately $130 on average per year in out-of-pocket drug costs and almost half-a-million Ontario seniors will pay no deductible and only a co-payment of up to $2 per prescription. Starting August 1, 2016, the government proposes to increase the income thresholds to qualify for the low-income seniors benefit.

10. What's new from the Childcare Resource and Research Unit

What's new from the
Childcare Resource and Research Unit (CRRU):
http://www.childcarecanada.org

April 10, 2016
What's new online this week:

City of Toronto response to proposed regulations under the Child Care and Early Years Act and Education Act
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/04/city-toronto-response-proposed-regulations-under-child-care
7 Apr 2016 | Ontario
In response to the newly proposed regulations under the Child Care and Early Years Act and Education Act, Toronto Children's Services and Parks, Forestry & Recreation conducted broad consultation with service providers, parents and others to produce a well-informed response. The City of Toronto is concerned with a number of the proposed changes including new licensing standards, reconfigured age groups and ratios, and the changing of community-based recreation programs. They note that the early learning and care and recreation communities must work together to find regulatory solutions that improve quality and access without wholesale changes that have unintended consequences.

OCBCC response to regulatory registry posting related to the Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014 and the Education Act: Phase 2 regulations.
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/04/ocbcc-response-regulatory-registry-posting-related-child-ca
6 Apr 2016 | Ontario
In response to the Regulatory Posting of February 1, 2016, the Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care began a process to inform, consult and engage its members on all the proposals contained in the posting. The areas in which there was broad consensus and those of deepest concern to the community are highlighted in this response. The OCBCC urges the government of Ontario to undertake a comprehensive policy process with the explicit goal of developing, over time, a quality, universal early childhood education and care system.

Policy legacies and child care politics in Australia and Canada
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/04/policy-legacies-and-child-care-politics-australia-and-canad
6 Apr 2016 | International
2015 article explores the puzzle of why Australia and Canada have followed significantly different paths in national-level child care policy despite their otherwise similar welfare state structures. The author suggests that the differences in the intended goals of the child care policies in each country affected the subsequent patterns of child care politics and policy development, leading to the divergent outcomes observed today.

Nova Scotia review of regulated child care
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/04/nova-scotia-review-regulated-child-care
6 Apr 2016 | Nova Scotia
Recent report on a review of child care services in Nova Scotia has been released. The review focused on five key areas: accessibility of child care for families, affordability of child care programs, quality of the programming, support and development of the workforce, structure and governance of the system. The report highlights the need for better compensation of the child care workforce in the province.

Child care services, socioeconomic inequalities, and academic performance
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/04/child-care-services-socioeconomic-inequalities-and-academic
6 Apr 2016 | Quebec
2015 study aims to determine whether child care services at a population level can reduce social inequalities in academic performance until early adolescence. The researchers found that children from low socioeconomic status families who received high-intensity child care services compared with those who received low-intensity child care services had significantly better reading, writing and mathematics scores. The researchers conclude that early participation in centre-based child care services is strongly encouraged for children growing up in families with low socio-economic status.

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.
