Moving Forward on Child and Family Policy: Governance and Accountability Issues

by Judith Maxwell, Sharon Stroick, Sherry Thompson

This paper provides an overview of the governance and accountability challenges that have been emerging within some Canadian jurisdictions and especially in federal-provincial relations. It explores some of the issues that have arisen as governments develop more partnerships and collaborative relationships with other governments, with non-governmental organizations, with regional and community structures, and with Aboriginal governments and communities. It begins to formulate and share best practices, and synthesizes the recommendations of participants at a CPRN roundtable on how best to move forward on policies for children and families in this changing environment.
