About the Policy Monitor

The Caledon Institute of Social Policy wound down its day-to-day operations in November 2017 as its co-founder and president, Ken Battle, entered retirement. For 25 years, Caledon was a leader in the development of evidence- and data-based Canadian social policy.

The Caledon Institute was launched in 1992 in partnership with the Maytree Foundation.

An important Caledon publication series, the Policy Monitor will be produced and managed by the Vanier Institute of the Family on a trial basis in 2018. These resources provide detailed and searchable overviews of policy announcements at the federal and provincial/territorial levels.
