Canadian Child Welfare Research Portal
Research Watch, a Centre of Excellence for Child Welfare initiative, tracks the major child welfare journals on a monthly basis. The Research Watch collaborative working group selects salient studies and summarizes them in short monthly e-newsletters distributed at no cost to subscribers.
The Canadian Child Welfare Research Portal (CWRP) provides access to up-to-date research on Canadian child welfare programs and policies. The Portal is a partnership supported by the McGill Centre for Research on Children and Families (CRCF), the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work at University of Toronto and the Alberta Centre for Child, Family and Community Research.
Originally developed through the Centre of Excellence for Child Welfare (CECW), the Portal continues to maintain links with the Child Welfare League of Canada (CWLC), the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society, the Groupe de recherche et d'action sur la victimisation des enfants (GRAVE-ARDEC), and other groups and organizations that collaborated with the CECW.
The Portal is designed to provide child welfare professionals, researchers, and the general public with a single point of access to Canadian child welfare research, i.e. research on abused and neglected children and on the programs and policies developed to support and protect these children and to support their families. The Portal includes a searchable data base of Canadian research publications, a data base of Canadian researchers, and information and statistics about provincial, territorial, aboriginal and national child welfare policies, legislation and programs.
