Canadian Social Policy in the 2000s: Bringing Place In

by Neil Bradford

In Canadian Social Policy in the 2000s:  Bringing Place In, CPRN Research Associate Neil Bradford explores departures in Canadian social development policy towards more place-based approaches.  Bradford uses innovations in policy thought and governing practices among OECD countries to bring Canadian policy communities more fully into the international conversation on place-based policy.  The paper shows the degree of federal policy experimentation aimed at better integrating policies for places and people, but which is still disparate and not yet systematically conceptualized.
