Assessing Family Policy in Canada: A New Deal for Families and Children, www.irpp.org
LEFEBVRE, Pierre and Philip MERRIGAN (UQAM). Institute for Research on Public Policy, Montréal, June 2003.

This exhaustive study concludes that recent federal and provincial government initiatives are misguided and have not efficiently addressed the problems of child poverty. Further, when these programs are combined with current welfare and unemployment assistance programs, there is no real incentive for families to increase their employment income, authors say. They also find that equity has been reduced for two-child, two-parent, working families..
