Family Issues for the Nineties.
This presentation reviews the characteristics of the Canadian family at present. Discussion focuses on divorce, family structure, reproductive technology, fertility, family size, family mobility, family support, government role, women's participation in the labor force, daily family routines, television viewing, work and the family, the need for and lack of child care, family influences on job performance, family responsibilities, work environment and corporate change, and population trends. It is asserted that the primary issue for the 1990s and beyond will be the extent to which society will treat families with children as significant contributors to the society and therefore worthy of support by those who do not have children.
