Brock researchers received $2.5M to investigate policy impacts on diverse families

June 1, 2020

A Brock University research team has received a $2.5M grant to lead an international team of researchers in investigations of how services and policies impact diverse Canadian families. The seven-year program will investigate what kinds of policy and services are best for Canada’s diverse families with young children. Developed prior to the pandemic, Brock Professor and project lead Andrea Doucet said the project is even more relevant today. “The pandemic has revealed how intertwined our working and caring lives are; how important and ‘essential’ care services and care workers are,” she said. “Childcare has emerged as one of the critical issues to economic recovery in Canada and in many other countries.” Brock (ON)
