The Progress of Canada’s Children is the Council’s portrait of children and youth in Canada. The first part of the report assesses the important influences or inputs that affect the development of children and youth. These environmental indicators include family life, economic security, physical safety, community resources, and civic vitality.

The second part assesses how well Canada’s children and youth are doing by examining outcome or progress indicators such as health status, social engagement, learning, and the labour force profile of youth. Taken together, these indicators provide a snapshot of the well-being of children and youth in Canada and show how they are faring year by year.

The number of Canadian children going hungry is on the rise and shows no sign of letting up, according to the report. The Progress of Canada’s Children 2002 says that approximately 75,000 families with children under the age of 12 reported being hungry in 1996 (the last year for which data are available) – an increase of one-third from 1994.

Topics covered include:
  • Family life
  • Economic security
  • Physical safety
  • Community resources
  • Civic vitality
  • Health status
  • Social engagement
  • Learning
  • Labour force profile of youth
The Canadian Council on Social Development (CCSD) is one of Canada’s most authoritative voices promoting better social and economic security for all Canadians.
