Does Canada Work for all Generations?
UNICEF ranks Canada among the very worst industrialized countries when it comes to investing in families.
- Household incomes have flat-lined
- Housing prices have skyrocketed
- The generation raising young kids does not access its share of economic growth
Dr. Paul Kershaw argues, “We all need a New Deal for Families if we want Canada to work for all generations.”
The YMCA of Greater Toronto and the Couchiching Institute on Public Affairs are pleased to co-present Dr. Kershaw’s discussion and views about his report Does Canada Work for all Generations?
