The Single Parent Research Project was undertaken to provide Alberta Human Resources and Employment (AHRE) with information on current programming strengths and weaknesses and to identify best practices. The research activities included 40 key informant interviews comprised of corporate AHRE staff, regional AHRE staff and service providers, review of documents (reports, etc.) provided by Alberta Human Resources and Employment as well as a literature review to identify and review information related to best practices in three other Canadian provinces as well as other comparable jurisdictions. The research focused on single parents who are in receipt of income support (Expecting to Work and Not Expecting to Work clients) as well as single parents who are engaged in Employment and Training Services.
