Public Policy Issues

Overview

This policy inventory was developed to complement the research and outreach activities that undertaken as part of the FIRA project. Its key purpose was to begin to identify the various ways current policies and institutional practices may affect fathers in diverse subpopulations and social circumstances across Canada, and to encourage discussion, analysis and debate about how policies and practices might better serve to support father involvemen. This section contains individual chapters from a larger document entitled: Inventory of Policies and Policy Areas Affecting Father Involvement.
