This report presents the findings of an initial assessment of the utilization & effectiveness of employment, job access, and training programs among Aboriginal women in Quebec.

It continues with a profile of employability program clientele by such characteristics as age, origin, level of education. Chapter 2 covers program utilization & effectiveness, based on socio-demographic data gathered during interviews and from statements of informants. Views of resource persons on programs and their utilization & effectiveness are analyzed. Programs specifically tailored to Aboriginal clients are also assessed with regard to such matters as eligibility and training content.

Women's support, women's work : child care in an era of deficit reduction, devolution, downsizing and deregulation by Gillian Doherty-Derkowski( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among the multiplicity of objectives that high quality child care can meet is the pivotal goal of promoting equality for women. Child care has consequences for women both as mothers and as providers of care for other people's children. Thus, women have a powerful stake in child care policy. Canada has no national child care policy and its child care situation has never begun to approach adequacy. In the 1990s, however, federal funding reductions and withdrawal from the social policy field, coupled with provincial downsizing have induced a new child care crisis. The predicament in which the block-funded Canada Health and Social Transfer (CHST), implemented in 1966, places child care embodies its standing in Canadian social policy. Child care has no "home" and its dwindling, mostly market-oriented funding arrangements ensure that even existing services are plagued with ever-increasing fragility. Yet Canada as a nation has a growing number of sectors that identify high quality, reliable child care/early childhood development services essential for their own agendas. National reports, such as that of the National Forum on Health, and national commitments, such as the Child Tax Benefit, plus a variety of international obligations and covenants, including the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women and the Nairobi Forward-looking Strategies for the Advancement of Women, all need child care in order to be effective. This paper identifies what has been happening in child care over the last decade, describes policy options for the commencement of Canada's long-recommended national child care policy, and suggests that a successful resolution to the child care dilemma would serve as a good test for assessing the effectiveness of the new social union

Aboriginal women in Canada : strategic research directions for policy development by Madeleine Dion Stout( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contradiction is a state of being with which Canadian Aboriginal women are familiar. However, despite their contributions to the social reproduction of their families and communities, they are often excluded. This document looks at the status of Aboriginal women in Canada. The purpose of the document is two-fold. It includes a 10-year retrospective analysis of the policy-oriented literature on Aboriginal women, highlighting those areas in greatest need of further research and documentation; and, an integrated policy agenda in which Aboriginal women's role as key change agents moves hem beyond their homes and communities
Re/Working benefits : continuation of non-cash benefits support for single mothers and disabled women by Tanis Doe( Book )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was designed to assess the provision of non-cash benefits to women with disabilities and single mothers. The intent was to show the advantages, in both financial and human terms, of extending support while women are employed temporarily, part time or in home-based employment. Focus groups were held in British Columbia and Ontario to ask women, who were either receiving income assistance or working, what benefits would mean to them. The financial costs of returning to work were also calculated. The report includes recommendations that address the following areas: day care services; health benefits; housing and transportation; job training; guaranteed income/pension; permanent disability designation; debt relief; funding infrastructure

Finding data on women : a guide to the major sources at Statistics Canada by Marcia Almey( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Guide focuses on the data sources at Statistics Canada, the major Canadian provider of gender-specific data. Readers will not find any data or statistics per se. What they will find is information on how and where to find data and statistics on a wide range of economic, social and legal issues related to gender equality. Demographics, housing and wealth, family status and living arrangements, paid and unpaid work, income, health and well-being, and violence and the justice system are among the many topics covered in this Guide. Given the diversity among women in Canada, readers will find information as to the existing data sources on Aboriginal women, immigrant women, visible minority women, and women with disabilities. For other groups of women, including lesbians, no national statistical data are available at present
