Healthy Balance Research Program

Publication Place:

Examines measures available through Canada’s tax and transfer system to support caregiving work.
The Healthy Balance Research program worked to: examine the relationship among unpaid caregiving work (performed on its own or in combination with paid work), empowerment and health status; foster "uptake" of new ideas and practices in policies; promote innovation in programs and health-service delivery that reflects new insights into the values and expectations brought to caregiving and paid work; and, strengthen research capacity in Atlantic Canada by recruiting and retaining health researchers. It was a collaboration between the Atlantic Centre of Excellence for Women's Health (ACEWH), Dalhousie University and the Nova Scotia Advisory Council on the Status of Women (NSACSW).

This document is a synthesis report from the Expert workshop on measuring social capital for public policy purposes, held on June 8th, 2004, at the Sheraton Hotel in Ottawa. The workshop brought together about seventy academic and government experts to examine different empirical strategies and measurement tools used in social capital research. Emphasis was placed on the measurability of social networks that provide access to resources and support, these being understood as the core constituent elements of social capital. The exercise was to identify essential elements of a "toolbox" for analyzing social capital for purposes of developing and assessing government programs and policies.
