Research Report:

Values and Preferences for the Best Policy Mix for Canadian Children

by Joseph Michalski

What are Canadians' values and preferences with respect to policies in support of children? The current discussion paper details the main findings from CPRN's study of community discussion groups, focus groups, roundtables, and public opinion polls. The results help to document areas of widespread agreement - and the persistent fault lines - that emerge among Canadians in thinking about the "best policy mix" for Canadian children. The analysis challenges governments, employers, communities, and families to think creatively about policy options that resonate with the deep-seated values and preferences expressed by the majority of Canadians.
