The one-day research event will focus on how knowledge can improve child care policy. University, community and government researchers will present papers and posters exploring the policy-knowledge connection. "Policy" is used in the broadest sense, and topics will include historical as well as contemporary, and international as well as Canadian perspectives. We warmly invite established as well as emerging scholars to submit a proposal - see the Call for Papers below. The final program for the research day will be available in late July. The registration fee to attend the research conference is $75, and can be paid either separately or at the time of registering for the national conference.
