Centre for the Study of Living Standards

Established in August 1995, the mandate of the Centre for the Study of Living Standards (CSLS) is to undertake research in the area of living standards. The Centre undertakes research in order to better understand the trends that contribute to living standards, contributes to public debate, and engages in advocacy for certain issues. Based in Ottawa, the CSLS receives funding from governments, unions, other think tanks, international organizations, and business associations.

The motivation behind the research and advocacy activities of the Centre is that increased cooperation and equitable sharing of productivity gains among all members of society can lead to economic growth, and ultimately, a higher standard of living for all. The Centre publishes its International Productivity Monitor to focus attention on the importance of productivity as a means of improving living standards. It also publishes the Review of Economic Performance and Social Progress, in coordination with the Institute for Research on Public Policy.
