1. Statement by the Minister of Finance on Historic Agreement to Strengthen the Canada Pension Plan - July 15
(Finance Canada)

Statement by the Minister of Finance on Historic Agreement to Strengthen the Canada Pension Plan
http://www.fin.gc.ca/n16/16-089-eng.asp
July 15, 2016

Version française:
Déclaration du ministre des Finances au sujet de l'accord historique visant à renforcer le Régime de pensions du Canada

http://www.fin.gc.ca/n16/16-089-fra.asp

Since June 20 in Vancouver, nine provincial Finance Ministers have signed on to an historic agreement in principle that will ensure future generations of Canadians can retire more comfortably. Since the Vancouver meeting all signatories have been working in good faith to confirm the approval of their respective Governments by July 15, a date chosen by consensus so that the work of implementing the enhancements could begin without delay. While all other signatories will meet this target, the Province of British Columbia has indicated that it needs more time to do so. The process remains on track for the Government to table federal legislation in the fall, as planned.

2. Some thoughts on a National Housing Strategy - July 2016
(Caledon Institute of Social Policy)

Some thoughts on a National Housing Strategy
Steve Pomeroy, July 2016

Abstract:
http://www.caledoninst.org/Publications/Detail/?ID=1101
Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development and the federal minister responsible for the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, recently announced a consultation process on the development of a national housing strategy. This paper puts forward some considerations for the development of that strategy. It argues that greater attention should be paid to the role of provincial/territorial income assistance and housing allowances to complement housing programs. Social housing providers must expand supports to enable labour market reattachment and thereby improve both tenant income and ability to pay rent. A clear role remains for the federal government as financier and funder of capital programs as a complement to the provincial/territorial role in income assistance. While the rental sector is a crucial component of the overall housing system, its importance has largely been overlooked. The result has been an erosion and undersupply of moderate-rate rental options. Equally important in a national housing strategy is the need to ensure access to homeownership for millennials and other first-time home buyers.

3. Working Poverty in Metro Vancouver - June 29
(Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives – BC Office)

Working Poverty in Metro Vancouver (PDF - 4.1MB, 36 pages)
https://www.policyalternatives.ca/sites/default/files/uploads/publications/BC%20Office/2016/06/CCPA_Working_poverty_full.pdf
By Iglika Ivanova
June 29, 2016
This study examines Metro Vancouver working poverty trends by neighbourhood pre- and post- the 2008 recession. We are often told that the solution to poverty is for the poor to “get a job” or for various sectors to create more jobs. But this study finds that a job is not a guaranteed path out of poverty. Over 100,000 working-age people in Metro Vancouver were working but stuck below the poverty line in 2012, not counting students and young adults living at home with their parents. Contrary to stereotypes about poverty being concentrated mainly in Vancouver and Surrey, this study finds the growing ranks of the working poor are spread out across the Metro Vancouver region. The study explores the economic and public policy contributing to working poverty and develops recommendations for change.

The study is a co-publication of the following organizarions:

Employment Insurance Improvements Taking Effect to Support Canada's Middle Class
http://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/employment-insurance-improvements-taking-effect-to-support-canadas-middle-class-586817871.html
July 14, 2016
The Government of Canada is keeping its commitment to helping the middle class and those seeking to join it by improving the Employment Insurance (EI) program. New measures are now in effect this month that will make more Canadians eligible for support, simplify job-search rules, and provide more help for people impacted by the commodities sector downturn. It will mean that EI is there for more Canadians that need it, when they need it.

13 Jul 2016 | Ontario
New article from the Association of Early Childhood Educators Ontario (AECEO) considers the structural supports needed to ensure that ECE professionals have the capacity to successfully implement How Does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years (2014). The article describes how this new responsibility will involve a momentous undertaking by registered members of the College of Early Childhood Educators in Ontario. It poses questions that stimulate dialogue and discussion about the need for systemic change so that new policy directives can be implemented successfully.

New report from the West Coast Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF) analyzes the legal implications of the inadequate child care system in British Columbia that is undermining the safety, well-being and human rights of women and children. The authors conclude that BC has a responsibility to implement a coordinated, comprehensive solution to the inadequacies of the current system in order to end these human rights violations.

Newly released biennial index from the Center for the Study of Child Care Employment [U.S.] considers the employment conditions and policies in each state that impact the early childhood workforce. Highlights of the 2016 index include low wages and earnings gaps across the sector and limited early childhood workforce policy at the state and national level. Previous and subsequent iterations of this index will provide the opportunity to identify trends and track progress in the states over time.

New brief from the OECD considers the expansion of early childhood education and care programs in recent years. Authors consider enrollment rates as well as positive educational outcomes at the age of 15 for children who attended pre-primary education. They note that pre-primary education can play a strong role in promoting equality at an early age. Suggestions offered include monitoring of ECEC programs so that quality is assured.

13 Jul 2016 | Canada
Recent paper compares the different expectations governments have with respect to parental contributions to their children’s education at the early childhood (ECE) and post secondary (PSE) levels. The authors consider costs, subsidy policies, and the intersection between the two by income level in ECE and then PSE. They find that parents of children in ECE are generally required to contribute more than parents of children in PSE.
