Caregiving & Work Project

The Caregiving & Work project explores Canada’s aging population,shrinking labour force and the limited resources and supports for family caregivers. Caregiving & Work is a collaborative partnership between the Vanier Institute, the University of Alberta, the University of Guelph and the Université du Québec à Montréal. An employer survey, manager interviews and community round tables form the basis of the data gathering and knowledge sharing.


Military and Veteran Families in Canada Initiative

The Military and Veteran Families in Canada Initiative is a collaborative effort seeking to bring awareness to some of the unique experiences of military families. The goal of the initiative is to build awareness, capacity, competency and community through knowledge mobilization.


On the Move Partnership

From daily commutes that take hours to jobs that take workers from home for days, weeks, months or years, the phenomenon of employment-related geographic mobility (E-RGM), or extended commuting, is widespread in the Canadian workforce. To understand this reality and how it affects households and communities, and influences and impacts Canadian prosperity, the Vanier Institute of the Family is collaborating with 40 researchers from 17 disciplines and 22 universities across Canada and around the world through the On the Move Partnership.
