Vanier Institute Taking Over from Caledon Institute to Produce “Policy Monitors”

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. That organization’s website now hosts Caledon’s social policy research archive.

An important Caledon publication series, Policy Monitors, will be produced and managed by the Vanier Institute of the Family on a trial basis in 2018.1 These resources provide detailed and searchable overviews of policy announcements at the federal, provincial/territorial and municipal levels.

The Vanier Institute team is excited to work on the Policy Monitors series with Anne Makhoul, formerly Caledon’s Principal Project Officer, who will continue to manage this resource.
