The paper explains high child poverty in the province of Ontario in relation to causes, statistics and effects, in children often consigned to or rescued by child welfare agencies led by the province's Children's Aid Societies. The paper looks at how government and social science references indicate a stopgap approach to an entrenched problem, and argues that child poverty promises far higher future costs than investing in basic supports for young children in poverty.

From the Paper:

"Ontario is the wealthiest industrialized region in Canada that has enjoyed a high economic growth rate for 10 years, yet 1.3 Ontarians live before the poverty line, including 1 in 6 or 478,480 of the province's children. The Canadian welfare state no longer delivers funds and services as reliably as in the past, federal, provincial and municipal levels of government reducing support for an array of helps, faith placed in welfare and mother's allowance supports that cannot serve poor children adequately in the absence of affordable housing, food or other basic needs."
