  • Moving Forward: Challenges Faced by Child- and Youth-Serving Agencies in

    • Authors: National Alliance for Children; Youth NACY
      Abstract: Twenty-two key informant interviews1 were conducted during the “Taking Stock” project, with a view to gaining a wide and diverse perspective about what was happening in the child- and youth-serving sector in Canada. As with the survey, this phase of the project did not attempt to gather a random or statistically representative sample of the sector, but rather sought a range of opinions from thought leaders and organizations that represented the various constituents and components of the sector. As well, four regional think tank sessions were convened during the first two years of "Taking Stock" in order to consult directly with a broad spectrum of leaders and stakeholders from across Canada. From these interviews, think tank sessions, and many other informal meetings and discussions, five major overarching themes emerged to describe the significant environmental factors that have an impact on child- and youth-serving agencies, particularly as they affect capacity building, service delivery, and sustainability.

  • Taking Stock: How Canadian Child and Youth Agencies Are Responding to
           Economic Challenges

    • Authors: National Alliance for Children; Youth NACY
      Abstract: Canada was one of the last countries to experience the world economic crisis of 2008-2009 and one of the most stable economies emerging from it. However, the nonprofit sector, like the private and public sectors, was not immune to the rapid impact of the economic downturn. Traditional sources of stable funding for the sector (governments, foundations, corporations, and individuals) all experienced the impact of the economic crisis, putting the nonprofit sector at risk at a time when the need for its services was growing due to increasing financial and other pressures on families.

  • An Action Framework for Children and Youth in Canada

    • Authors: National Alliance for Children; Youth NACY
      Abstract: The National Alliance for Children and Youth (NACY), in conjunction with its members and other partners, is proposing an Action Framework for Canada’s children and youth that identifies strategies to protect and enrich the lives of young people. NACY is seeking support from all who work to improve the lives of children and youth in Canada. Together we can draw on this Action Framework and, based on compelling evidence, make the healthy development of our children and youth truly a national priority.This article identifies priority issues of concern to NACY members and makes recommendations in seven areas
      Support for young families
      Mental health and well-being
      Youth employment
      Youth justice
      Violence, bullying, and peer victimization
