Our Approach to Family

The Vanier Institute of the Family seeks to create awareness of, and to provide leadership on, the importance and strengths of families in Canada and the challenges they face in all of their structural, demographic, economic, cultural and social diversity.

To this end, the Institute develops and implements, on an annual basis, a program of activities that establishes and maintains a foundation of accurate and current knowledge on family trends and issues as well as program analysis.


Visit our What’s New page for a complete list of our recent program activities and the Vanier in the News page to read recent media articles where Vanier publications and/or team members were sourced.
