Canada's Creeping Economic Apartheid

Subject: Inequality
Author: Grace-Edward Galabuzi
Price: $10.00
File Size: 833 KB










This report calls attention to the growing racialisation of the gap between the
rich and poor, which is proceeding with minimal public and policy attention,
despite the dire implications for Canadian society. It challenges some common
myths about the economic performance of Canada’s racialised communities and
shows how historical patterns of differential treatment and occupational
segregation in the labour market, and discriminatory governmental and
institutional policies and practices, have led to the reproduction of racial
inequality in other areas of Canadian life.





Canada's Democratic Deficit
Is Proportional Representation The Answer?
Subject: Democracy & Corporate Power
Author: Dennis Pilon
ISBN: 0-9688539-0-0
Price: $5.00
File Size: 132 KB










The rise of money-driven media politics is marginalizing Canadian voters and
contributing to a very real democratic deficit. In this paper Dennis Pilon
argues that if we want to make parties more responsive to people rather than
money, then we have to make elections more competitive and results need to
better reflect what Canadians actually vote for. To that end, he takes up the
question of reforming Canada’s voting system and what results we might expect
from some form of proportional representation.





Canada's Great Divide
The politics of the growing gap between rich and poor in the 1990s
Subject: Inequality

Over the course of the 1990s, Canada’s growing gap became a slippery slope for
a growing number of middle income families sliding towards the bottom of the
income ladder. Instead of greater affluence or growing poverty, the proportion
of familes at the richest end of the spectrum barely held their ground, while a
growing proportion of middle income families lost ground. This report is a
response to the publication Growing Gap and focuses on the net effects of
government actions on Canadians’ incomes between 1989 and 1997.

Subject: Inequality
Author: Nick Falvo
ISBN: 0-9733292-0-3
Price: $5.00
File Size: 399 KB










This paper looks at homelessness and housing policy in Canada as a whole, but
it pays particular attention to Toronto, surveying the growing extent of
homelessness as well as some of its social costs. Also considered are some of
the political and economic causes that underlie homelessness, and how the
drastic reductions in the creation of social housing units since the early
1990s and the significant changes made to income-support programs across
Canada, have led to the current crisis in homelessness. Barriers to employment
for homeless people are considered, followed by a surprising revelation about
Canada’s tax system. In conclusion, it highlights three strategies for
responding to Canada’s growing homeless populations.
