Connecting with Canadians

Research Area:

The Best Policy Mix for Canadians

The Best Policy Mix for Canadians research stream assumes that effective social policy must support choice and accommodate a variety of life circumstances.

Initiatives that support Canadian families cut across a number of policy fields and involve policy actors in the public, private and community sectors. Through its best mix research series, we work with a variety of partners to identify the most effective combination of policy options. Our aim is to help create greater policy coherence and integration as well as expand policy choice.
