In spite of recent policy efforts by Canadian federal, provincial, and territorial governments to address
disparities among Canadian families, well-documented problems require systemic attention; these
include (i) the prevalence of stark gender inequalities in household care work, paid work, and pay
equity; (ii) intersectional inequities between households in terms of access to affordable high-quality
childcare services, parental leave benefits, and employment policies that support work-family
integration; and (iii) the growing precariousness of Canadians' potential to craft sustainable and
habitable lives. These complex problems are being addressed simultaneously, but often separately and partially, by academics, civil society organizations, unions, the public and private sectors, and
international organizations. The Reimagining Canadian Family Policies (RCFP) research program was inspired by the view that what is needed to tackle such problems is a unified, interdisciplinary,
integrated, multi-sectoral, partnership-based approach to the co-creation and mobilization of knowledges about family policies and families' policy experiences.
