Welcome to the Children's Services Policy Research Group!

Our goal.

Welcome to the Children's Services Policy Research Group website. As a research team, our goal is to better understand the ways in which social polices shape children's access to services and impact of those policies on the capacity of minority and marginalized families and communities to care for their children. Much of our research has focused on documenting and identifying the policy features that contribute to service disparities for Indigenous children.  

One of the challenges to the advancement of research knowledge in this domain is the limited synthesis of existing literature and the shortage of mechanisms for sharing knowledge about disparate research initiatives.  This website represents an effort, on the part of our research group, to more systematically share information about our research and knowledge synthesis efforts. To promote access to current research, open access versions of publications have been provided throughout the site whenever possible.
