Connecting with Canadians

Research Report:

The Assets of Canadian Families, 1997

by Joseph Michalski

This study is the first empirical analysis of the interaction within the family and with key individuals who are close to that family. It provides the first, preliminary but reliable, portrait of the social, economic and cultural characteristics and family circumstances of people who seek help from family service agencies in Canada. It provides a baseline of information against which to compare future findings, and also offers methodological suggestions about how to gather the information the next time around.
