For many of the thousands of migrants making their way into Canada illegally near the Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, Que. border crossing, setting foot on Canadian soil is just the first step in the process to gain the right to stay legally. Aslyum seekers must file a claim with the Immigration and Refugee Board and while they wait for the board's decision, they have access to government services, including social assistance and health care.

Losing Ground : Income Inequality in Ontario, 2000–15 - August 15
(Sheila Block, Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives)

Losing Ground : Income Inequality in Ontario, 2000–15
https://www.policyalternatives.ca/losing-ground
By Sheila Block
August 15, 2017

Abstract:
This paper examines 15 years of income inequality for families raising children in Ontario (2000 to 2015), comparing it with national data for context, and finds several disturbing trends. The data reveal that Ontario is becoming more polarized as middle and working class families see their share of the income pie shrinking while upper middle and rich families take home even more.

A Renewed Voice for Social Canada - July 2017
Proposal: A Canadian Council on Inclusion and Wellbeing
(
Michael Mendelson, Caledon Institute of Social Policy)

A Renewed Voice for Social Canada
http://www.caledoninst.org/Publications/Detail/?ID=1116
By Michael Mendelson (Caledon Institute of Social Policy)
July 2017

NOTE (by Gilles) : The link above and the related links below were repeated in two earlier newsletters, but still some subscribers didn't see it. I'm a BIG fan of Caledon's work and I like the ring of "Canadian Council on Inclusion and Wellbeing", so I decided to include this resource in the newsletter one last time. This message will self-destruct 30 seconds after you finish reading it.

Abstract:
The federal government’s promised poverty reduction strategy must be more than a one-time commitment. It must provide for independent continuing appraisal and reappraisal of where we are and where we need to be, as the economy and society change. This paper proposes that the Government of Canada, as part of its poverty reduction strategy, put in place a new ‘institution’ provisionally called the Canadian Council on Inclusion and Wellbeing*. The paper describes the reasons and the historical roots for such a Council. It then details a proposed structure and financing for the Council.

* For more information concerning the Canadian Council on Inclusion and Wellbeing,
click the link above ("A Renewed Voice..." ) and then turn to page 4.

Consumer Price Index July 2017
http://www.statcan.gc.ca/daily-quotidien/170818/dq170818a-eng.htm

An increasingly diverse linguistic profile: Corrected data from the 2016 Census
http://www.statcan.gc.ca/daily-quotidien/170817/dq170817a-eng.htm
Linguistic diversity is on the rise in Canada. Close to 7.6 million Canadians reported speaking a language other than English or French at home in 2016, an increase of almost 1 million (+14.5%) people over 2011. Moreover, the proportion of the Canadian population who speak more than one language at home rose from 17.5% in 2011 to 19.4% in 2016

https://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2017/08/17/statcan-revises-census-data-after-error-over-english-speakers-in-quebec.html
An apparent jump in English-language speakers caused emotional ripples in Quebec, though StatsCan now says that conclusion was based on a statistical error — the number of English speakers is actually declining, not rising.

Families, households and marital status: Key results from the 2016 Census
http://www.statcan.gc.ca/daily-quotidien/170802/dq170802a-eng.htm?HPA=1
August 6, 2017
The 2016 Census data show that, today, proportionally fewer households are composed of a 'mom, dad and kids' family and more people are living alone, as part of a couple without children, or as part of a multigenerational family.
(...)
The percentage of one-person households now at a high in Canada's 150-year history.
Living alone also on the rise in other countries : Canada's percentage of one-person households (28.2%) was similar to that of the United States (27.5% in 2012) and the United Kingdom (28.5% in 2014) but lower than that of many other industrialized countries.

Over one-third of households in France (33.8% in 2011) and Japan (34.5% in 2015) had one resident. The percentages were still higher in Sweden (36.2% in 2011), Norway (40.0% in 2012) and Germany (41.4% in 2015). Living alone has decreased among senior women in recent years. One-person households most common in Quebec and Yukon. Number of couples without children growing faster than those with children. There are more couples living with children than without in some regions of the country. Common-law unions still increasing. Highest proportions of common-law unions in Nunavut and Quebec. Multigenerational households are the fastest growing type of household. One in eight households in Nunavut is multigenerational.

If you click on "Gilles' CRINMAIL Archive" below, you'll note that the latest issue of CRINMAIL is December 2016 because that's when I ceased updating the Archives pages for several online newsletters, some that went right back to Y2K. I've left those pages online but I won't be updating them.

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.

Disclaimer/Privacy Statement

Both Canadian Social Research Links (the site) and this Canadian Social Research Newsletter belong solely to me, Gilles Séguin.

I am solely accountable for the choice of links presented therein and for the occasional editorial comment - it's my time, my home computer, my experience, my biases, my Rogers Internet account and my web hosting service.

I administer the mailing list and distribute the weekly newsletter using software on the web server of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE).
Thanks, CUPE!

------------------------

The e-mail version of this newsletter is available only in plain text (no graphics, no hyperlinks, no fancy bolding or italics, etc.) to avoid security problems with government departments, universities and other networks with firewalls. The text-only version is also friendlier for people using older or lower-end technology.

Privacy Policy:

The Canadian Social Research Newsletter mailing list is not used for any purpose except to distribute each weekly issue.
I promise not share any information on this list, nor to send you any junk mail.

Links presented in the Canadian Social Research
Newsletter point to different views about social policy and social programs.
There are some that I don't agree with, so don't get on my case, eh...

You can find the online version of this (August 20, 2017) newsletter at this link:
