Canadian Social Research Newsletter
October 16, 2016

Welcome to the weekly Canadian Social Research Newsletter,
a listing of the new links added to the Canadian Social Research Links website in the past week.

NOTE (by Gilles): I usually send out my weekly newsletter at some point on Sunday, but I've been busy this past week doing catch-up on my website and newsletter since my wife and I returned from a trip to Ireland.
And NO, we didn't kiss the Blarney Stone - it's a freakin' tourist trap: after paying the small ransom to stand in line for 45 minutes (I kid you not...), you pay again to get close enough to kiss the stone AND to receive a lovely cardoard-lined framed photo of your legs hanging over the side - you can't even tell who the subject of the photo is. Total saved by not going near the stone : 40 Euros

The rest of the trip was much more fun and reasonably priced, and the people on our tour bus were a splendid group...

2. Ontario Increasing Social Assistance Rates - September 2016
(
Ministry of Community and Social Services)

Ontario Works (OW) and Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) Rates
and the Ontario Child Benefit – 2016

http://incomesecurity.org/public-education/ow-and-odsp-rates-and-the-ocb-2016
September 12, 2016
The provincial government increased Ontario Works (OW) and Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) rates in the 2016 Ontario Budget. As in past years, we’ve created a rates sheet to give people an idea of what these increases really mean.

Our new rates sheet shows the new Basic Needs and Shelter rates, as well as the Ontario Child Benefit amounts, for different family types. We include the Ontario Child Benefit because it’s an important part of the total incomes of people on OW and ODSP who have children.
The rates sheet also explains the details of these increases, like how they’re being applied and to whom, and talks about increases being made to other benefits available inside OW and ODSP.
The increases come into effect on the September 30 OW and ODSP cheques.

--- Ending Poverty in Canada is Possible.
Working to end poverty in Canada requires a great deal of persistence and effort. That is why it is encouraging that so many people in communities and organizations across Canada are working to raise awareness about the complex reality of poverty and pushing for policy that will make a difference.

Right now there is an important opportunity to engage with each other and the federal government in working to end poverty in Canada. Minister of Families, Children and Social Development, Jean-Yves Duclos, has initiated both a National Housing Strategy consultation process [ https://www.letstalkhousing.ca/ ] and a six city study [ http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/new-brunswick/tackling-poverty-reduction-federal-saint-john-1.3746319 ] that will inform the development of the Canadian Poverty Reduction Strategy. As well, the HUMA Parliamentary Committee is about to begin an extensive study on poverty reduction strategies. CPJ will submit briefs outlining our recommendations for policy that will make a difference for those living in poverty.

Our fourth annual ChewOnThis! event [ https://www.cpj.ca/chew ] will involve over 50 communities across Canada. We will be calling for meaningful consultations that give priority to the voices of people with lived experience of poverty and reflect the human rights framework and policy recommendations outlined in the Dignity for All model national anti-poverty plan [ http://cpj.ca/national-anti-poverty-plan-canada].

5. Strengthening Canada’s Public Employment Service Post-Devolution - September 2016
(By Donna Wood, Caledon Institute of Social Policy)

Strengthening Canada’s Public Employment Service Post-Devolution (PDF - 2.7MB,
http://www.caledoninst.org/Publications/PDF/1104ENG.pdf
Donna E. Wood, September 2016

Starting in 1996, responsibility for managing Canada’s public employment service began to be devolved from the Government of Canada to provinces, territories and Aboriginal organizations. The variety of different labour market transfer agreements has created a complex and fragmented system. This paper proposes ways that Canada’s now largely decentralized public employment service could be strengthened through better governance. Proposals include:

• develop a pan-Canadian multilateral labour market framework agreement
• consolidate the four federal-provincial agreements into one agreement
• devolve responsibility for federal youth and disability programming
• reaffirm the federal stewardship and coordination roles
• restore the National Aboriginal Labour Market Management Board
• develop a National Labour Market Partners' Council
• include comparative research in the mandate of the Labour Market Information Council.

What's new online this week:

Early childhood: Fostering the vitality of francophone minority communities
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/10/early-childhood-fostering-vitality-francophone-minority-com
5 Oct 2016 | Quebec
New report released by the federal Commissioner of Official Languages highlights a lack of resources, a shortage of early childhood educators and the fragmentation of services as hindering early childhood development in Francophone minority communities. Recommendations include that the Minister of Families, Children and Social Development ensure that Francophone minority communities are consulted as part of the development of the national framework on early learning and child care and that a Francophone component is included in the framework.

Towards a poverty reduction strategy
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/10/towards-poverty-reduction-strategy
5 Oct 2016 | Canada
New discussion/consultation paper considers the multiple dimensions of poverty including income, housing, the workplace, health, mobility; it mentions child care several times. The Government of Canada is releasing this paper as a "starting point for reaching out to its provincial, territorial and municipal partners, Indigenous people, community organizations, poverty experts and academics and those who have a lived experience of poverty to consult with them on their poverty reduction strategy". In the coming months, an online engagement website will be launched where individuals and organizations can provide input.

The New America Care Report
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/10/new-america-care-report
5 Oct 2016 | United States
Recent report from New America in collaboration with Care.com considers the early care and learning system in the US. A care index that examined the cost, quality, and availability of child care in all 50 states and the District of Columbia is used as a jumping off point to explore the complexity of the fragmented US child care system. The report purposes systemic change to the early care and learning infrastructure including the introduction of universal paid family leave and implementation of high quality universal pre-K programs.

5 Oct 2016 | Asia
Recent paper considers the significant changes to early childhood education in China over the past 35 years. It aims to understand why and how the Chinese government changed its attitude and policies by conducting a critical analysis of this evolution, focusing on post- 2010 development. The authors find that accessibility, affordability and accountability problems will challenge the evolution of ECE reform in China. They note that these challenges provide opportunities for establishing more efficient funding and monitoring reforms.

A guide to early learning and child care in Ontario
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/09/guide-early-learning-and-child-care-ontario
28 Sep 2016 | Ontario
New guide considers the many changes to governance, financing and pedagogy of early learning and child care in Ontario since 2012 providing a comprehensive update to the previous versions of this guide. The authors aim to provide ECE students and professionals with a thorough overview of the current state of early learning and child care in Ontario including legislation and regulation, financing, curriculum and pedagogy, as well exploring issues of diversity, children’s rights, advocacy and the role of the professional.

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.
