    Description:

    Regulation of child care centres and home environments benefits children by setting standards for such things as child safety, child to caregiver ratios, and caregiver education and training which are all key elements in providing high quality care. In contrast, unregulated child care is of unknown quality and does not necessarily conform to provincial regulations and standards other than a maximum number of children in care, which itself is irregularly monitored. Surveys of child care use generally rely on parental report of regulatory status; however, the accuracy of parental reports is unknown. Thus, the objective of this study is to examine the accuracy of parental reporting of the licensed status of child care including child care centres as well as child care homes where the regulatory status may be less apparent.

    Description:

    Statistics Canada is gathering information from families who use child care as well as those who do not. The survey, which addresses child care in Canada for children younger than 6 years old, asks about the different types of early learning and child care arrangements that families use, difficulties some families may face when looking for care, as well as reasons for not using child care. The survey will also cover the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on child care.

    Description:

    To date, there exists little national information on the provision of child care services in Canada, despite investments in the creation of a national child care program. Statistics Canada, in collaboration with ESDC developed the Canadian Survey on the Provision of Child Care Services (CSPCCS) to identify the feasibility of a survey frame to survey child care providers, and to enable the reporting of descriptive information about those providers. This article describes the CSPCCS and its objectives.

    Description:

    Over the past several decades, there has been a growing demand for non-parental child care services, in part due to a rise in dual earner families and single parent households who may require care while working or studying. Previous work has described the use of child care for pre-school aged children in Canada and other high-income countries. However, much less information is available to describe the use of child care for school-aged children. Thus, the purpose of the current study is to describe the use of non-parental child care for kindergarten and elementary school children (age 4 to 11), including type of care and number of hours in care, as well as to identify predictors and correlates of child care use for this demographic.

    Description:

    Canadian governments, at federal and provincial levels, have shown increasing attention to the importance of child care, in particular as a means to increase parents' labour force participation and enhance children's development. The Survey on Early Learning and Child Care Arrangements (SELCCA) provides a current snapshot of early child care use in Canada, and can be used to better understand the reasons why families choose to use or not use different types of child care arrangements. This presentation explores findings from the 2020 SELCCA in order to demonstrate use of child care, types of arrangements used by parents, reasons for using and not using care, and difficulties finding child care. Results will also be compared to the 2019 SELCCA to explore changes that have occurred during the course of the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Public use microdata: 12M0025X
    Description:

    This package was designed to enable users to access and manipulate the microdata file for Cycle 25 (2011) of the General Social Survey (GSS). It contains information on the objectives, methodology and estimation procedures, as well as guidelines for releasing estimates based on the survey.

    Cycle 25 collected data from persons 15 years and over living in private households in Canada, excluding residents of the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut; and full-time residents of institutions.

    For the fifth time, in 2011, the General Social Survey (GSS) collected detailed information on families in Canada. Previous GSS surveys on this topic were conducted in 1990, 1995, 2001 and 2006. The 2011 survey updated most of the information collected in previous surveys, including leaving the family home, conjugal history (marriages, common-law unions, separations and divorces), children (biological, adopted or step), maternity and parental leave, childcare arrangements, intentions to form (or re-form) a union, fertility intentions, custody and financial support agreements and work history. As in all GSS surveys, data were also collected on the respondent's main activity, education and other socio-demographic characteristics. The 2011 GSS data can be used for cross-sectional and retrospective analyses (i.e. tracking the different family histories and trajectories followed by men and women).

    Description:

    The tables under the topic "Canada's Workforce: Unpaid Work" present data on the unpaid work of the Canadian workforce, including unpaid household work, unpaid child care, and unpaid senior care. These data, together with information on paid work, provide a more complete picture of the work activities of all Canadians.

    This information can be used to study that part of the population whose main activity is unpaid household work; to analyze the division of household work between men and women; to better understand the contribution of men and women to the economy; to evaluate the capacity of the unpaid sector to absorb care-giving responsibilities no longer provided by the paid sector; and to analyze how workers balance their job and household responsibilities.
