National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls

As part of its commitment to hold a national inquiry to address the high number of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls annouced in December 2015, the Government of Canada has launched a pre-inquiry online survey to allow survivors, family members, loved ones of victims, front-line service providers and others the opportunity to provide input into who should conduct the inquiry, its timeframe, who should be heard as part of the inquiry process, and what issues should be considered. A discussion guide has been developed and is now available online. All details are available here.

National Child Day

The pathways and conditions supporting the healthy development and well-being of children are issues that researchers are able to investigate thanks to the data available through the Network. To mark National Child Day, we wish to draw your attention to our most recent knowledge synthesis reviewing the evidence on the relationship between family income and children’s outcomes. The authors, Annie McEwen and Jennifer Stewart find that higher income improves a range of child outcomes but that, on the whole, the improvement is quite small. This suggests that addressing inequalities in childhood, which create unequal chances for success later in life, will require policy that tackles more than only income as a source of disadvantage.
