2. Ontario Retirement Pension Plan Act - June 7
(Barrie Examiner)

Ontario Pension Plan Act changes welcomed:
http://www.thebarrieexaminer.com/2016/06/07/ontario-pension-plan-act-changes-welcomed
June 7, 2016
Ken Renshaw has already tucked away an RRSP for his retirement.
But news that the new Ontario Retirement Pension Plan Act (ORPP) – Strengthening Retirement Security for Ontarians – passed at Queen's Park last week (see next link below) gives Renshaw and his generation reason to be optimistic about their future.
(...)
ORPP was created to bring financial security and drive economic growth by giving Ontario workers a predictable stream of income in retirement. ORPP is also constructed to offer survivor benefits for all plan members.

2015 licensed child care operators survey report
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/06/2015-licensed-child-care-operators-survey-report
8 Jun 2016 | Ontario
Recently released report provides a provincial summary of a 2015 survey of the licensed child care sector in Ontario. 4,500 child care centres and home child care agencies participated. Survey results show that 78% of child care centres who participated were non-profit and that 55% were located in publicly-funded schools. It was also found that care during non-standard hours was limited with only two percent of centres offering evening care after 7:00 p.m.

Within- and between-sector quality differences in early childhood education and care

8 Jun 2016 | United States
New article published in Child Development considers national [U.S.] data in order to examine the magnitude of quality differences between formal and informal early childhood education and care providers; Head Start, prekindergarten, and other center-based care; and programs serving toddlers and preschoolers. The results highlight the large quality differences across sectors and their relationship with child outcomes such as reading and math skills.

8 Jun 2016 | Nova Scotia
Providing context for the current shift in Nova Scotia's child care and early years sector, this 2015 report from CCPA-NS assesses the provinces market-based patchwork approach to child care services. The authors note that the story of child care in Nova Scotia has been one of neglect and that the current system has resulted in a lack of regulated spaces, high parent fees and low sector wages.

Gender equity and 100 years of income taxes
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/06/gender-equity-and-100-years-income-taxes
8 Jun 2016 | Canada
Recent article published in Policy Options considers gender and gender equity as a central consideration in the development of policy. The author outlines how the tax and benefit system in Canada can act to either preserve prevailing gender roles or facilitate gender equity. The author uses income splitting as an example of a tax policy that reduces women’s incentive to work and acts to preserve past negative gender roles.

Parameters of public policy change
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/06/parameters-public-policy-change
8 Jun 2016 | Canada
2015 journal article examines three models of public policy development: pluralism, policy paradigms, and political economy. The author argues that political economy provides the most compelling explanation of the public policy development process in Canada and that this model provides means to bring about policy change to improve the health of children which includes early childhood education and care.

Swiss voters overwhelmingly reject proposal for unconditional basic income
According to projections from a polling group, 78% of voters opposed the measure

http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/swiss-referendum-guaranteed-income-1.3617059
June 5, 2016
Swiss voters overwhelmingly rejected a proposal that would have guaranteed everyone in the Alpine nation an unconditional basic income, according to projections published Sunday by public broadcaster SRF1. The plan could have seen people in this wealthy nation of eight million people receive about 2,500 Swiss francs ($3,315 Cdn) per month — enough to cover their basic needs.

How a guaranteed minimum income could work in Canada

By Andrew Coyne
June 6, 2016
The Swiss may have just voted to reject a proposal for a guaranteed minimum income — also known as a guaranteed annual income, basic income guarantee or, increasingly, just basic income — but that hardly means the idea is dead. Pilot projects and feasibility studies are in the works across the developed world, from the Netherlands to California. In Canada, the federal Liberals, along with governments in Ontario, Quebec and Alberta have expressed interest in the concept.

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.
