In this paper we explore our clients’ attitudes towards supportive housing, and the progress and challenges they have encountered, in an effort to inform future policy development and system planning. Between March and May this year, the project working group interviewed 16 clients at 4 Toronto supportive housing sites and held focus groups with site staff. The experiences of clients transitioning from hospital to community, and the role supportive housing plays in recovery from mental illness, form the centerpiece of this paper.

The table shows the monthly Basic Needs and Maximum Shelter amounts both before and after the increase for select family types. Ontario Child Benefit (OCB) amounts are included here to give a sense of the total maximum monthly income that people on assistance get from these provincial sources.

7. Senator Hugh Segal speaks out in Gananoque against poverty and guaranteed annual income - November 1
(St. Lawrence EMC)

Senator Hugh Segal speaks out in Gananoque against poverty
http://www.emcstlawrence.ca/20121101/news/Senator+Hugh+Segal+speaks+out+in+Gananoque+against+poverty
November 1, 2012
By Lorraine Payette

Senator Hugh Segal, Kingston-Frontenac-Leeds, recently spoke at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Gananoque on the subject of ending poverty in Ontario.
"Today, and for 40 years, said the Senator for Kingston-Frontenac-Leeds, I have been campaigning for the kind of economic framework that deals with the worst scourge and most serious social and economic threat that 'a safe place to call home' continues to face - and that is the scourge and plague of poverty,". "Poverty is what makes what should be a strong community weak, makes a potentially unified and coherent society divided and in pain. And here in Canada, while we have made progress, we can do much better."
(...)
Senator Segal suggested that a basic minimum income would alleviate many of the problems experienced by the poor in Canada.
(...)
Segal's plan would be to use something like the mid 1970s MINCOME program that was put into place in Dauphin, Manitoba. Over a four-year period, residents of the agricultural community were guaranteed that, if their crops could not keep them at the poverty line or above, they would receive additional funding to bring them to that amount. The entire program, including benefits, researchers and staff to run it, cost only $17 million, and for the most part assisted the working poor. All residents qualified for this aid if needed, there were no substantial clawbacks of funds if a person continued to work, and the rules were manageable. The money could be used as the recipient felt was best.

[Author Senator Hugh Segal is a Conservative senator from Kingston Ontario and a long-time proponent of the efficiency, fairness, stability and productivity benefits of a guaranteed annual income.]

When the Harper Government™ finally decided that it had a bellyful of Senator Segal's incessant natterings about inequality in Canada and all that guaranteed annual income nonsense [ http://goo.gl/wQehd ], they decided to shift the focus of the Senator's attention and energy to something else less embarrassing for the Harper Government™:

8. Anne Golden’s stern warning of growing rich-poor gap - October 31
(Toronto Star)

Anne Golden’s stern warning of growing rich-poor gap
http://www.thestar.com/opinion/editorialopinion/article/1280687
By Bob Hepburn
October 31, 2012
Anne Golden rarely pulls her punches.
So it shouldn’t have been a huge surprise when she took advantage of a dinner held in her honour to deliver a stern warning to a roomful of corporate bosses about the widening gap between the rich and poor in Toronto. Just as firmly, Golden told the business leaders that they’d better step up and do their part to help deal with the fast-growing gap or Toronto could face even greater problems in the coming years. For many executives, dire talk of pending doom for Toronto surely is familiar and they tune it out. But when Anne Golden speaks, they listen. That’s because Golden is someone they respect, a civic activist and city-builder with a well-deserved reputation for excellence, fairness, determination — and for tackling the tough issues.
(...)
Golden’s roots as a civic activist are deep. She became involved with the urban reform movement in Toronto in the 1960s and 1970s, joined the fight to stop the Spadina Expressway and gained national prominence for spearheading major reports on the Greater Toronto Area and homelessness.
(...)
Inequality also weakens the sense of community and social cohesion and contributes to more violence and crime, she adds.
(...)
When she was finished speaking, the CEOs gave Golden a standing ovation.

10. HungerCount 2012 - October 30
(Food Banks Canada)

Recession’s legacy has food-bank usage soaring in Canada
http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/recessions-legacy-has-food-bank-usage-soaring-in-canada/article4748510/
By Tavia Grant
October 30 2012
A record number of Canadians visited a food bank this year, an indication the recession’s legacy continues to bite. More than 882,000 people used a food bank this March, a 2.4-per-cent increase from last year. Demand is now 31-per-cent higher than before the recession, a study to be released Tuesday says. Food banks were never supposed to be a permanent part of Canada’s landscape. They sprang up during tough economic times in the early 1980s as a temporary way to alleviate hunger. Thirty years later, more than three quarters of a million Canadians are using food banks each month.

12. PFO Bulletin #10 – Final Report on the Social Assistance Review: Limited Improvements, Serious Concerns
(Poverty Free Ontario - PFO)

PFO Bulletin #10 – Final Report on the Social Assistance Review: Limited Improvements, Serious Concerns
http://www.povertyfreeontario.ca/2012/10/31/pfo-bulletin-10-final-report-on-the-social-assistance-review-limited-improvements-serious-concerns/
October 31, 2012
Commissioners Frances Lankin and Munir Sheikh released their long-awaited report Brighter Prospects: Transforming Social Assistance in Ontario on October 24, raising both hopes and anxieties in the community that received it. The Report proposes a major restructuring of social assistance, funded mostly by eliminating existing benefit programs in the short-term and proposed internal administrative savings in the longer roll-out, including a projected decrease in the disability caseload from 5% to 3% a year.
Poverty Free Ontario (PFO) and its community partners across the province have consistently advocated to the Ontario Government for an end to deep poverty for people on social assistance and an end to working poverty for low income earners.
Selected contents:

* Several Income Improvements Proposed
* Propose a Minimal Subsistence Standard for Adequacy
* Risks in a Standard Rate with “Building Blocks”
* Institutionalizing Divisive Trade-offs Among Low income People
* “Embracing Workfare”?
* Most Vulnerable at Highest Risk
* Conclusion
(...)
PFO joins other voices in the community and the labour movement in challenging the political claims of austerity that Ontario is without fiscal capacity to address deep poverty for those on social assistance and working poverty (PFO Bulletin #4 : http://goo.gl/Wjs2n ). Revenue recovery through reversing tax cuts over the past decade remains the responsible political path for a just social order in Ontario.

Frances Lankin and Munir Sheikh give Ontario an affordable plan to modernize social assistance: Goar
http://www.thestar.com/opinion/editorialopinion/article/1280032
October 30, 2012
By Carol Goar
No government is ever likely to get a welfare blueprint as clear, comprehensive, far-sighted and affordable as the plan Frances Lankin and Munir Sheikh unveiled last week.
Not only did the two commissioners — a social service leader and an accomplished economist — come up with a way to transform Ontario’s social assistance system from an $8.3-billion program that perpetuates poverty into an $8.6-billion strategy that reduces it; they won endorsements from business leaders, health professionals, community activists and social analysts. That is a monumental achievement — but not enough to guarantee its success. Four daunting hurdles stand in the way...

IMPORTANT TIP : DON'T CLICK ON THE REPORT LINKS IN THIS BIBLIOGRAPHY!
Almost ALL of the links in the above bibliography are broken because their URLs point back to http://epe.lac-bac.gc.ca/ and those reports aren't there.
Instead of clicking on a hyperlink to a report you wish to see, you must highlight the URL that appears beside the report (using your mouse) and copy and paste it into the ADDRESS bar at the top of your browser, then hit Enter. If you hover your cursor over most of the report links, you'll note that the link that appears in the browser is different from the one that appears in your status bar at the bottom of your browser.

I should also mention that you can't access any of the National Council of Welfare's reports whose links appear in this collection, because the Council closed its doors and its website at the end of September 2012. If you wish to read one of the Council's reports that's on the list, copy & paste its title into the Publications Search text box [ http://www.publications.gc.ca/site/eng/search/search.html ] and hit Enter.

[Use the table of contents in the left margin to navigate.]

The release of the 2010 Survey of Labour and Income Dynamics (SLID) data coincided with a historical revision of the 2006 to 2009 data. The survey weights were updated to take into account new population estimates based on the 2006 Census rather than the 2001 Census. This paper presents a summary of the impact of this revision on the 2006 to 2009 survey estimates. The effects for each year are quite similar, and as a result, the annual trends from the data remain steady. However, in many cases, the actual levels of estimates do change.

Conrad Black and the Order of Canada

The New, New Black
http://www.theglobalmail.org/feature/the-new-new-black/457/
By Eric Ellis

Fresh out of the joint, disgraced media baron Conrad Black is charging his way through an image rehab tour, insulting everyone in his path.

Conrad Black and the Order of Canada (Microsoft Word file - 27K, 2 pages)
http://openpolicyontario.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/Conrad-Black-and-the-Order-of-Canada.doc
By John Stapleton
October 30, 2012
John Stapleton feels that Conrad Black should NOT be stripped of his Order of Canada because what he did ("Tubby", as Allan Fotheringham of Macleans Magazine famously used to call him) doesn't hold a candle to the despicable antics of David Ahenakew and Alan Eagleson, both of whom lost their membership in the Order of Canada.

John muses:
"The simple reality is that most of us are calling for Black's removal not on the grounds that he is a convict and someone who has supposedly turned his back on Canada. Instead we want him out because we don't like his persona, his aloofness, his litigious nature, his seeming arrogance and the un-Canadian sense we get that he believes that he is better than the rest of us. This is not good enough reason to cashier him or anyone else from the Order of Canada."

[By Gilles : I agree with everything in the cited paragraph above ---- except the last sentence!
My guess is that John wasn't a Hollinger shareholder.
Nor was I, for that matter, but I just love to see pompous asses taken down a few notches.
Looks good on ya, Tubby!]
