Urban Affairs: Back on the Policy Agenda
McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP, 2002 - Political Science - 400 pages
Issues of urban policy are increasingly complex and important. Whether considered from a social, demographic, or economic perspective, Canada is overwhelmingly an urban nation and healthy, prosperous cities are the key to its well-being. What then, is our national policy toward urban affairs? In Urban Affairs leading experts in a variety of disciplines explore this question. Canada's last experience with national urban policy-making was in the 1970s. The authors focus on what has happened since, exploring how both city-regions and ideas about the urban policy-making process have changed. The authors also examine both the past and present roles of the federal government, and what it can and should do in the future.
