The Women in Public Policy initiative started as a research project in Nova Scotia involving 126 women involved in trying to make public policy changes. The second phase of WIPP was a national workshop involving over 100 community-based women, researchers and government employees working toward the same end. They are now seeking to evaluate how their efforts to affect public policy (1) are being assisted by Steps Toward a Credible and Inclusive Public Policy Process, and (2) are affecting our organizations.

Broadening the Mandate of CHERA/ACRES to CAHSPR/ACRSPS
 
Background: The health care landscape in Canada has undergone dramatic transformations in the past decade, with important implications for research and decision-making in health services, health economics, and health policy domains.
There has been a growing need for a national broad-based interdisciplinary health services and policy research association to support practitioners, users and students of health research to enhance their research capacity and professional development. In response to this, a new membership-based health services association is launched.
The new Association called the Health Research / Association canadienne pour la recherche sur les services et les politiques de la santé (CAHSPR/ACRSPS), will replace the Canadian Health Economics Research Association/ Association Canadienne pour la Recherche en Économie de la Santé (CHERA/ACRES). The aim will be to enhance research capacity within both the researcher and "research user" communities.

New name for national anti-poverty organization

Posted on: February 5, 2009
NAPO, the National Anti-Poverty Organization, has changed its name to Canada Without Poverty. According to their website:
"These changes are part of our repositioning for the strongest possible contribution to combating poverty, inequality and social exclusion in Canada. Our new name is meant to keep our focus squarely on the ultimate goal, and to inspire others. Our new logo is meant to suggest the rising above and out of poverty, to get above whatever one's poverty line might happen to be, and to then move forward with a better chance of fulfilling one's potential and promise as an individual and as a citizen."
