The Vanier Institute of the Family envisions a Canada where families engage and thrive in a caring and compassionate society, with a robust and prosperous economy, in an inclusive and vibrant culture, in a safe and sustainable environment.

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.
