Note (by Gilles): OK, I know that I mentioned in a recent newsletter that I'd be slacking off for a few weeks to recharge the old batteries, while the report-crunching people in government, academia and the NGO sector slow down the pace of report production. You'll note in today's newsletter that the bulk of this week's recommended reading list is the weekly media alert/scan prepared by Jennefer Laidley of the Income Security Advocacy Centre (ISAC) in Toronto.
THANKS, JENNEFER!!
Scroll down the newsletter that you're presently reading to #4 ("Media & Policy News") and scan the list of media articles. There are over a hundred articles in this ISAC media alert. To access any item in the list, just click on the short link (URL) immediately preceding the list of titles to open the whole list with hyperlinks to the individual articles.

Ontario Establishing Income Security Reform Working Group
https://news.ontario.ca/mcss/en/2016/06/ontario-establishing-income-security-reform-working-group.html
Bulletin
June 29, 2016
Ontario has established an Income Security Reform Working Group to help guide the province's efforts to reduce poverty, support people in their efforts to participate in the economy, and provide services in a way that makes sense to the people who need them.

The province is working to move away from a complex system of social assistance, to a more holistic, client-centred approach to a broader income security system. The working group will build on work already underway and provide advice to government on social assistance reform, income security, and supports for housing, health and employment. The Basic Income Pilot announced in the 2016 Budget will help inform this work.

George Thomson, Senior Director of the National Judicial Institute and former Ontario Provincial Court Judge, who also chaired the Ontario Citizen’s Assembly on Electoral Reform, will act as the Income Security Working Group’s facilitator.

Ontario appoints Hugh Segal to provide advice on design and implementation of a Basic Income Pilot:
https://news.ontario.ca/mcss/en/2016/06/ontario-moving-forward-with-basic-income-pilot.html
June 24, 2016
The province has appointed the Honourable Hugh Segal to provide advice on the design and implementation of a Basic Income Pilot in Ontario, as announced in the 2016 Budget.
Basic income, or guaranteed annual income, is a payment to eligible families or individuals that ensures a minimum level of income. Ontario will design and implement a pilot program to test the growing view that a basic income could help deliver income support more efficiently, while improving health, employment and housing outcomes for Ontarians.

5. Canada Pension Plan: The New Deal - June 2016
(Caledon Institute of Social Policy)

Canada Pension Plan: The New Deal
By Michael Mendelson, Sherri Torjman and Ken Battle
June 2016

Abstract:
http://www.caledoninst.org/Publications/Detail/?ID=1100
July 1 and all things Canadian typically are celebrated through this country’s unique music and culture. But we rarely reflect upon the important role in our lives of major social programs. This year especially, the Canada Pension Plan should be recognized as a significant national achievement. It was no mean feat to craft a complex political agreement that has translated into one of the most sophisticated and financially successful pension programs in the world. 2016 marks the 50th year of the introduction of this landmark achievement. But we should celebrate not only the special birthday of this vital program. This Canada Day, we also need to recognize the new political agreement to renew and revitalize the Canada Pension Plan for future generations.

The CPP agreement is a welcome announcement and a significant advance in Canadian social policy. It bolsters one of Canada’s most important
social programs. It will also boost the Working Income Tax Benefit, though the extent and design of the increase are unknown at this time.

OnPolicy: Ontario's working poor
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/07/onpolicy-ontarios-working-poor
6 Jul 2016 | Ontario
New summer 2016 issue of OnPolicy considers the working poor across nine Ontario cities. Different chapters outline the problems associated with working poverty, including a lack of affordable child care in cities like Toronto. Solutions are offered such as improving food security, raising the minimum wage, tackling precarity in the workplace and improving working conditions for low-wage work.

Working it out: Balancing work and care after the birth of a first child
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/07/working-it-out-balancing-work-and-care-after-birth-first-ch
6 Jul 2016 | Australia and New Zealand
New eBook chapter outlines the pressures to combine work with family responsibilities in the early years of motherhood for women in western societies. The chapter examines how these options are exercised as women make decisions about re-entry to the workforce following the birth of their first child. Presenting an analysis of data from a cohort of Australian women, the authors find that less provision for maternity leave and availability of familiar trustworthy childcare impacts how and when mothers return to work.

Calculating the hidden cost of interrupting a career for child care
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/06/calculating-hidden-cost-interrupting-career-child-care
6 Jul 2016 | United States
New report from the Center for American Progress considers the child care affordability crisis in the United States that is leaving families with the choice of spending most of their paycheque on child care or leaving the workforce to become a full-time caregiver. The report explores the financial toll that the latter decision places on families while also providing parents with a tool that calculates the hidden costs of staying home such as the potential loss of salary growth and missed retirement saving contributions.

Equal but inequitable: Who benefits from gender-neutral tenure clock stopping policies?
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/07/equal-inequitable-who-benefits-gender-neutral-tenure-clock-
6 Jul 2016 | United States
Recent article published by the Institute for the Study of Labor considers the high female exit rate from the professional workforce and whether adopted gender-neutral family policies "level the playing field." Using a data set of assistant professor hires at universities, the authors find that the adoption of gender-neutral tenure clock stopping policies substantially reduced female tenure rates while increasing those of men. They suggest the need for more nuanced policy that recognizes the differences in how women experience life after child birth.

Early-life exposure to income inequality and adolescent health and well-being
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/07/early-life-exposure-income-inequality-and-adolescent-health
6 Jul 2016 | Europe
Recent report from UNICEF considers the association between national income inequality and well-being during adolescence in both Europe and North America. The authors find that income inequality during early childhood impacts health symptoms and life satisfaction in adolescents. They highlight that the period of development for income inequality exposure coincides with the early years when social relationships extend from the family to school and community settings. The authors infer that inequality may shape child developmental trajectories in ways that later manifest in reduced health and well-being.

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.
