Canadians are well served by information produced by Statistics Canada and academics that describes the changes in family forms and functions that have taken place in recent years. However, in maximizing personal and social life in Canada, it is important to know not only what individuals are experiencing in the way of family life but also to know what they would like to be experiencing – their aspirations, hopes, and dreams. With such a goal in mind, the Vanier Institute of the Family in Ottawa teamed up with Reginald Bibby to carry out a major national survey in 2003 of close to 2,100 Canadians. The survey produced many surprising and important findings – including the widespread value people are placing on fairly traditional family arrangements, and the reality that many of these same individuals are not experiencing what they want. The survey found Canadians as a whole to be highly respectful of people who cannot and in some instances choose not to live out family life in traditional ways. Overall, this reading of Canadians documents the central importance that most people place on family life. The report, released in late 2004, concluded by discussing ways that family life – however conceptualized and experienced – might be elevated for all Canadians.
