Welfare Reform in Canada : Provincial Social Assistance in Comparative Perspective (Hardcover)
About this item
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.
