Outside The Box, 6:00AM - 7:00AM ET
Hosted by Willow Yamauchi

As the cost of housing in many parts of this country sky rockets, some people are turning to alternative homes to meet their housing needs. Host Willow Yamauchi steps 'Outside the Box' to take us on a tour of some of the most unconventional homes across Canada. Whether you are in a condo, a mobile home---or tucked away in a cottage,---you might just hear about a place you'd like to call home.

An Easter Show with host Errol Nazareth!

Mother Tongues, 8:00AM - 9:00AM ET
Host Aparita Bhandari

Aparita Bhandari is a mother of two children, ages 4 and 2. Despite being fluent in Hindi (spoken and written) she's struggling with passing the language to them. "I hope you're teaching them their language," she is told regularly, but there are no guidebooks to help her. Canada is a country with more than 200 living languages, but many of these languages are dying. The show looks at what's at stake for passing on the *mother tongue*.

Strengthening Fathers, 12:00PM - 1:00PM ET

Absent fathers leave a huge hole in their children's lives. Across North America, black families are having what is often a difficult and sensitive conversation about the impact of father absence. On "Strengthening Fathers," hear stories about the stereotype of the absent dad and the complicated reality.

The Dirt on Soil,  5:00PM - 6:00PM ET
Host Sarah Elton

Life on earth depends on healthy soil. And yet ... most people don't know - or care - that the world's soils are in danger: depleted, eroded, or sapped by urban sprawl. That's why the United Nations has declared 2015 to be "the year of soils". Tune in to The Dirt on Soil with host Sarah Elton ... to find out what's being done to save our soil ... and why the stakes are so high.
