1. From Solitary Confinement to “One to Many” (Solitary Confinement Series) - May 12
(John Stapleton, Metcalf Foundation)

Solitary Confinement Series
Innovation Fellowship, Inclusive Local Economies

http://metcalffoundation.com/stories/metcalf-stories/solitary-confinement-series/
2016
By Metcalf Innovation Fellow John Stapleton

The Resilient Neighbourhood Economies (RNE) project [ http://metcalffoundation.com/stories/publications/resilient-neighbourhood-economies-report/ ] focused on building sustainable economic opportunities for low-income people and ran from 2012 to 2015. The project was a partnership between Metcalf’s Inclusive Local Economies Program and two community-based organizations. During RNE’s three years, both community organizations raised concerns about roadblocks that individuals on social assistance face that prevent them from exploring self-employment or entrepreneurial opportunities. We asked Metcalf Innovation Fellow John Stapleton [ http://openpolicyontario.com/ ] to explore this issue. The result is this series of guest posts titled Solitary Confinement. In these posts John will share first-hand accounts, provide analysis of structural barriers, and shine a light on examples or solutions that can address disincentives. Click on the two links below to read the first two postings.

May 2016: From Solitary Confinement to "One to Many"
http://metcalffoundation.com/stories/metcalf-stories/solitary-confinement-series/#from-solitary-confinement-to-one-to-many
This is the second in a series of posts that explore the difficulties social assistance recipients face when pursuing self-employment or entrepreneurial options. It is co-written by John Stapleton and Leila Sarangi. (...) While not an ideal framework, One-to-Many enabled the women to use Ontario Works benefits and resources to support a socially-driven collaborative enterprise model and help them on their path to self-sufficiency.

February 2016: Two case studies and the income/employment conundrum
http://metcalffoundation.com/stories/metcalf-stories/solitary-confinement-series/#two-case-studies-and-the-income-employment-conundrum-content
This is the first in a series of posts that explore the difficulties that social assistance recipients face when pursuing self-employment or entrepreneurial options. My focus is primarily on newcomers who are searching for a way to be self-reliant. I also focus on situations in which barriers are particularly acute. (...) Fortunately, Toronto Employment and Social Services has developed a new experimental model that respects entrepreneurship and understands the need to provide consistent messaging to recipients and organizations undertaking group entrepreneurship. It is called the “one-to-many” model and the odyssey that resulted in that model is the subject of a future posting.

Consulting with Canadians - Employment Insurance Service Quality Review
http://www.esdc.gc.ca/en/consultations/ei/service_quality_review.page
May 2016
About this consultation:
Millions of Canadians rely on the Government of Canada to provide them with easy access to the services and benefits to which they are entitled. They expect quality and fast service from their government—whether the service is provided online, over the phone or in person. According to Service Canada data, too many Canadians are not receiving the level of service they expect.

Shameful neglect: Indigenous child poverty in Canada
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/05/shameful-neglect-indigenous-child-poverty-canada
18 May 2016 | Canada
New report from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives calculates child poverty rates in Canada including the rates on reserves and in territories. The report disaggregates the statistics and identifies three tiers of poverty for children in Canada, finding the worst poverty experienced by status First Nation children. The authors call for immediate action to resolve the ongoing crisis affecting Indigenous people across the country, and recommend a poverty reduction plan that includes strategies such as improving child-related income support and social infrastructure.

Effects of the 2001 extension of paid parental leave provisions on birth seasonality in Canada

18 May 2016 | Canada
2015 paper explores a correlation that the 2001 extension of paid parental leave benefits had to birth seasonality in Canada. The authors discuss the potential effects of this kind of unintended consequence of policy change.

Vermont’s early childhood & after-school workforce: Findings from the Vermont early childhood & after-school workforce surveys

18 May 2016 | United States
2015 workforce survey from Vermont gathered information regarding the demographics, education and credentials, wages, benefits, and aspirations of the early childhood and after-school workforce in the state. Survey results show that although the early childhood and after-school workforce reported high job satisfaction they are also plagued with low wages and few benefits that often force them to consider leaving the field.

Jumping through hoops and set up to fail
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/05/jumping-through-hoops-and-set-fail
18 May 2016 | United States
Recent report from the Center for American Progress provides stories based on interviews with parents, care provides and policy experts that illustrate the lived experiences of citizens struggling with the U.S. child care system. The interviews show that policies that aim to support economic self-sufficiency often concretely function in ways that make finding and keeping work almost impossible. They also prove how programs that support parents can help reduce day-to-day stress, benefiting both adults and children alike.

Constructions of childhood in early childhood education policy debate in New Zealand
http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/05/constructions-childhood-early-childhood-education-policy-de
18 May 2016 | Australia and New Zealand
2010 article from New Zealand considers the assumptions held about children and childhood by government officials and organisation representatives that often shape and influence public policy formation. The author argues that a construction of the child as a citizen within a social community is a new paradigm that places children’s rights and agency to the forefront. She notes that this construction of the child as a basis for policy formation better supports ECE services as participatory forums for building social networks.

Universal basic income : the basic income experiment that could revolutionise welfare
http://www.news.com.au/finance/money/wealth/the-basic-income-experiment-that-could-revolutionise-welfare/news-story/44d7a5f1076cc2262a6b44e200374055
May 11, 2016
Excerpt:
(...) This idea of a “universal basic income” isn’t new — having been floated by various economists and politicians across the world for decades. But as of next year, Finland are biting the bullet and will become the first country to trial such a scheme. A number of Finns — in the ballpark of 10,000 — will be given a set living wage of around €550 ($AU850) a month for two years, in an attempt to balance the shortcomings of the country’s current welfare system. If the trial is successful, it could be implemented across the country.
