October 2010 online edition

The October 2010 online issue of Canadian Social Trends, released today, contains two articles.

The first article, "Child care for First Nations children living off reserve, Métis children, and Inuit children," examines child care arrangements of First Nations living off reserve, Métis and Inuit children. It examines the availability of culturally-relevant activities and language in care as predictors of children's outcomes.

The second article, "Help with activities of daily living for people with a disability," examines how many people with disabilities receive help with activities of daily living, the type of activities with which they get help and the care receiver's relationship to the person or persons providing help. It also explores how these relationships change as the severity of the care receiver's disability increases.

The October 2010 online issue of Canadian Social Trends, no. 90 (11-008-X, free) is now available from the Key resource module of our website under Publications.
