Celebrating 20 Years

Over its 20-year history, the Centre for Families, Work and Well-being led and collaborated on significant projects that influenced policy and programs, motivated workplaces and communities to adapt to the changing needs of individuals and families, fostered interdisciplinary research and provided new ways of learning for students and communities. We are proud to celebrate and honour 20 years of research innovation and impact.

Relaunch: Beginning from the Margins

While we celebrate its past achievements, we are also excited to announce the relaunch of the Centre for Families, Work and Well-being. This relaunch is the culmination of a year spent listening to those deeply connected to the Centre and those who wished to be. It has been a year of collaboration and meaningful conversations. The theme running through all these conversations was consistent: In order for us to understand diverse forms of families, work and well-being, we need to begin from the margins.

Now, the Centre considers the complex ways that families are formed, interrupted, joined and separated; how work comes in many forms paid, unpaid, voluntary, contractual, among other complex and creative ways that people sustain themselves, their families and their communities; and that well-being includes all of our deep connections living and not, past, present and future. 

Why Join Us?

We are excited to relaunch the Centre, with a new strategic direction and vision for the future. We want to engage with folks whose work and interests intersect with diverse forms of work, family and well-being. If this is you, then we would love to see you!
