The Centre for Families Work & Well-being

is an innovative, interdisciplinary research and educational centre responding to dramatic changes in family patterns, paid work, and broader economic and political structures.

Faculty, staff and graduate students work on projects relevant to individual and family well-being, the interface between work and family, and contextual factors that affect workplace productivity and community supports. Research topics include organizational health, caregiving and work, father involvement, social support and community development.

The Centre's core strengths include strategic research, policy analysis and best practices development.

The Availability, Accessibility and Effectiveness of Workplace Supports for Canadian Caregivers

The purpose of this project was to obtain current
Canadian information to assess the extent to which workplaces provide a
variety of flexible work arrangements, leave policies, and information
and supports that can enable employees to successfully combine paid
employment and caregiving for adult or elder family members.
