Data Rescue
The Caledon Institute of Social Policy is pleased to announce the launch of our Data Rescue crowdfunding campaign. The purpose of this campaign is to help raise funds for Welfare Incomes that had been published regularly since 1989 by the National Council of Welfare. In 2012, the federal government announced – with no warning – that it was dismantling the National Council of Welfare and cutting all its work, including Welfare Incomes. After much deliberation, we decided at Caledon that we need to keep alive this vital source of information. We had developed the original methodology and knew how very difficult it would be to reconstruct credible numbers. We need to sustain Welfare Incomes, which provides credible evidence to make the case for decent incomes and for welfare reform. Please watch our video and help us by contributing $20 (or more if possible) to our Giveffect campaign posted in the attached link. And please forward this notice to friends and networks, send a Tweet and/or post this link to your Facebook. Together we can preserve this powerful weapon in the war on poverty. Thank you!

In Support of Caledon Institute of Social Policy
The Caledon Institute is a social policy think tank. Established in 1992 as a private, nonprofit organization, it performs high-quality research and analysis. It seeks to inform and influence public opinion and to foster public discussion on poverty and social policy. It develops and promotes concrete proposals for the reform of social programs at all levels of government and of social benefits provided by employers and the voluntary sector. Caledon’s work covers a broad range of social policy areas including income security, disability supports, caregiving, Aboriginal education and community capacity-building. While Caledon focuses on Canadian issues, it draws upon international experience and innovations in social policy. The Maytree Foundation, located in Toronto, is the primary funder. Caledon is an independent and critical voice that does not depend on government funding and is not affiliated with any political party.
