Canadian Medical Association calls for proof of vaccinations before children can be enrolled in school
National Post
Every elementary and high school in the country should require parents to provide proof their child has received up-to-date immunizations for school entry, Canada's doctors say. But in a move that could fuel the anti-vaccination movement, delegates to the Canadian Medical Association's annual general council meeting overwhelmingly rejected a call for a national program to compensate those who suffer the extremely rare injuries that can be caused by vaccines.

Parents urge province to deliver all promised daycare reforms
Toronto Star

The initiative is already part of a package of child care reforms passed last December, much of which comes into force now. But with provincial consultations on that particular provision still months away, parents are wondering when Ontario will make good on its promise.

Manitoba universities need more early learning, childcare options
CBC News
Another year of the back-to-school mixture of excitement and anxiety is just around the corner, and some college and university students may already be faced with more anxiety than excitement if quality child care for their children isn't ensured. Current trends in post-secondary education are leading to a higher number of students needing early learning and child care (ELCC). There are more newcomer and indigenous students with children, and more people with families facing work-force changes are pursuing studies for new careers.

Couples that split childcare duties have better relationships, sex lives
CTV News
A team of researchers from Georgia State University have concluded that heterosexual couples that split childcare duties have higher-quality relationships and sex lives than couples in which the majority of the responsibilities lie with the mother alone. The study was led by Daniel L. Carlson, an assistant professor of sociology at Georgia State University (GSU), and GSU graduate students Sarah Hanson and Andrea Fitzroy.
