Since 1992, the Caledon Institute of Social Policy has conducted rigorous research and analysis designed to spark discussion among Canadians regarding issues of poverty and public policy. This research also informs pragmatic proposals for the improvement of Canada’s social programs provided by different levels of government, employers, and the voluntary sector.
The Caledon Institute of Social Policy has done extensive work focusing on the programs and income supports available to Canadians with disabilities, and has also produced publications on issues pertaining to social assistance, community capacity-building, taxes and social spending, employment development services and health.
