Canadian Council on Social Development

The Canadian Council on Social Development develops and promotes progressive social policies inspired by social justice, equality and the empowerment of individuals and communities. Much of their research is online. Some of their other projects include:

  • The Urban Poverty Project 2007 which is a series of comprehensive analytical reports, resource tools, and data profiles which take a broad look at different aspects of urban poverty in Canada, using detailed data from Statistics Canada Censuses and other sources.
  • Facts and Stats, a on-line service of the Canadian Council on Social Development, which provides accessible and accurate statistical information.
  • Canadian Social Forum in Calgary, May 19-22, 2009. The Forum targets poverty – both urban and rural. Workshops by aboriginal presenters doing innovative work across the country will play a critical role.
