HELP Webinar: International Family Policy Comparisions: Why Canada lags behind

Canada lags behind most other industrial countries on many of the international family policy rankings, including public investments. In most provinces, this reflects the on-going fragmentation of both our systems for and our thinking about families with young children. And yet we know that provincial and federal policy environments have a profound effect on the wellbeing of Canadian families. In this webinar, HELP's Senior Researcher, Lynell Anderson explores what we can learn from international policy comparisons (with a focus on OECD countries including Norway, France, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Australia). What policy differences make a difference? She highlights key policy changes required to help children and families thrives in Canada. This webinar was recorded on February 19, 2014.
