2. The Enabling Society : Canada’s welfare state needs transformation, not more tinkering - April 9, 2015
(Peter Hicks in Policy Horizons)

NOTE : This essay appeared in the IRPP's Policy Horizons Essay in April 2015

Canada’s welfare state needs transformation, not more tinkering
http://irpp.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/2015-04-09-news-release.pdf
News Release
April 9, 2015
Montreal – As changing demographics, globalization and rising income inequality bring the future of social policy to the forefront of public debate, a new essay in the IRPP’s Policy Horizons series argues that an entirely new framework is needed to replace Canada’s outdated welfare state. Social policy expert Peter Hicks warns that fine-tuning the existing system will not be enough to fix the architecture of Canada’s social programs. While he does not disagree with recent calls to enhance access to child care, pensions and pharmacare, Hicks argues we are missing the basic point – Canada’s social policy framework must be modernized to meet new realities.

The Enabling Society
By Peter Hicks
IRPP Policy Horizons Essay
April 9, 2015
Summary : http://irpp.org/research-studies/policy-horizons-essay-2015/
Complete essay : (PDF - 477KB, 48 pages) : http://irpp.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/policy-horizons-2015.pdf
Excerpt:
"Hicks ... proposes a fundamental restructuring of Canada’s income security system. Specifically, he recommends reconfiguring the system around three pillars:
* providing a relatively modest guaranteed annual income to prevent people from falling through the cracks;
* refocusing social insurance programs (such as employment insurance) on the core mandate of providing income replacement during periods of unemployment or disability; and
* creating a new system of lifetime accounts that will allow people to take greater control of planning and managing their learning, work, caregiving and leisure."

Putting a human face on poverty in Hamilton: Four personal tales of struggle and hope
http://www.thespec.com/news-story/6458439-putting-a-human-face-on-poverty-in-hamilton-four-personal-tales-of-struggle-and-hope/
April 8, 2016
How is Ontario faring when it comes to poverty? Just about every six years, the Interfaith Social Assistance Reform Coalition [ http://isarc.ca/ ] aims to find out. The Hamilton social audit was last conducted in 2010, and will again provide a window into the lives of those Hamiltonians living in poverty.
(...)
This year the panellists will have heard from more than 25 Hamiltonians from diverse backgrounds. The effort will result in a report that attempts to put a human face to on the serious challenges that poverty poses in Hamilton and across Ontario.

By Ken Battle, Sherri Torjman and Michael Mendelson
This commentary published in the Globe and Mail argues that the newly-introduced Canada Child Benefit will lose its real value over time unless it is indexed to the rate of inflation.

Excerpt:
"We are at a loss to explain why the federal Liberal government would make such significant progress in assisting lower income families with children and then quietly unravel much of the improvement they were so proud to announce. "

Refundable tax credits and the path to a basic income guarantee
https://politudes.com/2016/04/14/refundable-tax-credits-and-the-path-to-a-basic-income-guarantee/
By Robin Boadway
Posted April 14, 2016
We are posting this article with permission of the author and the Basic Income Guarantee Network, where it was originally published. It is a clear and simple explanation of a possible route to a guaranteed basic income, based on federal direct action. The pursuit of a basic income guarantee (BIG) is gathering momentum, but much of the emphasis has been on setting up pilot projects.

Satisfaction with work-life balance: Fact sheet, 2012
http://www.statcan.gc.ca/daily-quotidien/160414/dq160414c-eng.htm
According to the 2012 General Social Survey, most parents who work full time are satisfied with their work-life balance. In 2012, 75% of parents said they were satisfied or very satisfied with this balance. The others were neither satisfied nor dissatisfied (15%), dissatisfied (8%) or very dissatisfied (1%). Mothers (72%) were slightly less likely than fathers (78%) to be satisfied or very satisfied with their work-life balance.

http://www.statcan.gc.ca/daily-quotidien/160411/dq160411a-eng.htm
The relatively stronger wage growth observed in Alberta during the 2000s led a significant number of young men to move to that province, thereby filling some of the job vacancies observed during that period. A new study found that from 2001 to 2006, average real annual wages and salaries earned by unmarried men aged 17 to 34 grew faster in Alberta than in other provinces. For example, wage growth for young men living in Alberta exceeded that of their counterparts in Ontario by about 15 percentage points, while the difference was about 10 percentage points for young men in Prince Edward Island.

What's new online this week:

The power of parity: Advancing women's equality in the United States
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/04/power-parity-advancing-womens-equality-united-states
13 Apr 2016 | United States
New report from the McKinsey Global Institute finds that every U.S. state and city can add at least five percent to their GDP by 2025 by advancing the economic potential of women. The report also notes that half of U.S. states have the potential to add more than 10 percent, and the country’s 50 largest cities can increase GDP by 6 to 13 percent. They highlight higher female labor-force participation and narrowing the gap between men and women who work part time and full time as ways for this boost to be secured.

It’s time for an ambitious national investment in America’s children

13 Apr 2016 | United States
New report from the Economic Policy Institute [U.S.] reviews the evidence on why a major investment in America’s children is such a promising economic strategy that can provide substantial social benefits—and that would more than pay for itself over time. It highlights four particular tranches of benefits including the benefits that stem from having more resources invested in the care and education of children in their early years.

Early social-emotional functioning and public health: The relationship between kindergarten social competence and future wellness
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/04/early-social-emotional-functioning-and-public-health-relati
13 Apr 2016 | United States
2015 research examines whether kindergarten teachers' ratings of children’s pro-social skills predict key adolescent and adult outcomes. The researchers found statistically significant associations between measured social-emotional skills in kindergarten and key young adult outcomes across multiple domains of education, employment and mental health. They conclude that kindergarten measure of social-emotional skills may be useful for assessing whether children are at risk for deficits in non-cognitive skills later in life and and thus help identify those in need of early intervention.

Supporting the child care and workforce development needs of TANF families
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/04/supporting-child-care-and-workforce-development-needs-tanf-
13 Apr 2016 | United States
Recent report considers the needs of low-income families receiving cash assistance through Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) in the U.S. The authors recognize that workforce development and child care are paramount to these families receiving the support they need. The report outlines the opportunities offered by workforce development and child care subsidy systems but also highlights the challenges of meeting the complex needs of these highly disadvantaged families. Implications for federal and state policy improvements are identified.

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.

April 9, 2016
On Thursday, for World Health Day, the World Health Organization [ http://www.who.int/ ] released its first global report on diabetes [ http://www.who.int/mediacentre/news/releases/2016/world-health-day/en/ ], announcing that the number of people living with diabetes worldwide has almost quadrupled since 1980, growing from 108 million to 422 million adults. In Canada, it's estimated that three million adults have diabetes, and costs our health-care system $3-billion a year. What's more, this number is expected to grow by 40 per cent in the next 10 years.

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.
