Welfare Reform in Canada

August 10, 2015 | 416 pages

Welfare Reform in Canada brings together top scholars and practitioners in the field of social welfare to provide a detailed assessment of the current state of social assistance in each Canadian province. It also offers key insights for the future of scholarly research and public policy action. The book answers the need for more systematic knowledge on Canadian social assistance by offering conceptual, international, historical, and quantitative perspectives on welfare reform and by emphasizing the changes that have taken place since the end of the twentieth century. In ten case study chapters, contributors examine the key issues of social assistance in the Canadian context, including gender relations, disability, immigrants, aboriginal peoples, seniors, housing and homelessness, and the impact of activation programs.
