Abstract

Within the context of Human Resources and Social Development Canada’s Knowledge Plan 2005-2008, this paper presents:

• an overview of recent changes in the family, their interpretation and implications;

• a proposed framework for research on families based on the concepts of “caring, earning, and learning,” “the life course” and “constrained decision making”;

• a summary of findings for each of the broad life course stages; and

• implications for policy considerations and for further research.
