No one individual or group can change the systems that create and sustain generational unfairness. Governments must play a lead role because they have the policy and fiscal tools that operate at the systems level – tools that can be used to implement Gen Squeeze’s policy solutions provincially and federally.
Analyze budgets and election platforms
Elections and budgets are key moments in a democracy, when political leaders are especially likely to listen to voters. But good citizens who are squeezed for time and money may not have the bandwidth to make sense of hundreds of pages of party platforms and government budgets. That’s why Gen Squeeze works year-round to decipher these documents for you and to influence what's being offered.
We synthesize the best available evidence into comprehensive solutions frameworks. These game plans outline the goal, principles, and concrete actions needed to make Canada work for all generations.
Shape public dialogue
We know that it takes more than having the facts on your side to make change—especially when the facts challenge values and assumptions in place for decades. That’s why a big part of what we do is help people to see the status quo differently.
Gen Squeeze is deeply appreciative and grateful to work alongside many others committed to creating fair public policy that preserves healthy homes, childhoods and a healthy planet for current and future generations.
Gen Squeeze is routinely invited to offer concrete, evidence-based policy advice to federal and provincial officials on generational fairness issues, like housing, child care, health and wellbeing, taxation, public debt, etc.
