Compares hard data on the economy, health and crime to polling information on how Canadians perceive they are faring in these three areas. Found that Canadians have a little more spending money in their pockets and more confidence in their job security, but they are less satisfied with the ability of their incomes to meet their basic needs – and increasingly anxious about Canada’s health and social safety nets.

The Canadian Congress for Learning Opportunities for Women (CCLOW), was a national feminist organization dedicated to addressing education and training issues for girls and women. Disbanding in 2001, their vision was women's social, political and economic equality through expanded learning opportunities; their focus areas being literacy, equity in education and job training.

Over the years (1970's - 2001) the CCLOW accumulated a large collection of important literature, which everyone wanted to see preserved. In answer to this, the National Adult Literacy Database (NALD) has created a comprehensive, searchable archive of all the CCLOW's literature, including:
