Eliminating the early vulnerability debt with new family policy

Kershaw P.

2009

Biologically unnecessary early childhood vulnerability costs Canada nearly 7-times the federal government’s current debt (accumulated deficit). Three major family policy changes are required to modernize Canada’s human capital investment strategy in order to capitalize on the economic potential that inheres in reducing early vulnerability. The first two fall within federal jurisdiction; the third falls under provincial jurisdiction, but is subject to the influence of federal spending power and policy leadership.
