Caledon Institute launches a new hub for data, reports and analysis [Maytree]


Looking to build your evidence base with data, reports and information about social programs and policy? Good news! The Caledon Institute of Social Policy, in partnership with The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation, Metcalf Foundation, the Ontario government and Maytree, has just launched the Canada Social Report, a web-based initiative designed to provide much needed social information.

The Canada Social Report addresses two serious problems – the loss of some key sources of social statistics and data, and the need for more accessible social policy information in Canada. It includes a range of social program and policy material from statistics and descriptions of social programs to updates on Canada’s federal, provincial/territorial and municipal social policies.

As a living document that will evolve over time, new sections and materials will be added as relevant documents and data become available.

Data and evidence are critical for understanding our social challenges and developing relevant and sustainable solutions. Caledon welcomes your feedback and support of this vital and ambitious pan-Canadian initiative.

Access the Canada Social Report and start exploring.
