Who We Are

The Centre for Families Work & Well-being is an innovative, interdisciplinary research and educational centre responding to dramatic changes in family patterns, livelihoods, 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, sexual and gender diversity, disabilities studies, father involvement, social support, community development, and indigenous ways of knowing about families, work, & well-being.

The Centre's core strengths include strategic research, community engaged scholarship, policy analysis, knowledge mobilization, and best practices development.
