 New Century, New Risks: Challenges for Social Development in Canada
At the beginning of the 21st century, countries are examining the effectiveness of their social architecture for responding to new social risks related to changes in family structure, the aging population and the changing labour market.
Canada’s social architecture was designed to respond to social risks facing the population as a whole, in keeping with McGill professor Leonard Marsh’s observation that social “needs are always present at some place in the community or among the population” (Report on Social Security for Canada, 1943).
Two recent and significant contributions to the debate on a new social architecture in Canada will be profiled at the conference, that of the Canadian Policy Research Networks (CPRN) and the Canadian Council on Social Development (CCSD).
