Reimagining Care/Work Policies launches website
Reimagining Care/Work Policies is a seven-year research program committed to expanding possibilities for policies, practices and meanings of care/work for diverse families in Canada.
The Vanier Institute has partnered with Brock University and over 30 other partners (mainly non-profit, charitable, community and government) and 50 co-investigators and collaborators to work on the program. The project team includes leading researchers from across Canada and around the world. The team will study how programs and policies (especially child care, parental leave and employment policies) impact the everyday lives and the well-being of diverse Canadian families, including Indigenous, racialized, newcomer, solo-parent, LGBTQI2S and low-income families. You can learn about the work, projects and stories on the new website launched this month. Read more
