Like many of you, we at the CCPA are concerned about recent actions by the federal government that stifle democratic debate. These actions include:
- Major cuts to Statistics Canada and elimination of the long-form census—the most crucial policy tool available for analyzing poverty and inequality in Canada.
- Abolishment of the National Council of Welfare and removal of funding of prominent arms-length social and labour market policy research institutes—forcing their closure.
- Drastic weakening of environmental assessment rules allowing easier approval of risky new projects like pipelines.
These attacks have a chilling effect on those speaking out for a democratic and just society. But the CCPA will not be silenced.
Canadians rely on the research and analysis we provide. Our work shows that progressive policies are not only possible, but also practical and affordable.
The need to expand our research capabilities is more urgent than ever. Help keep our voices strong by making a donation to the CCPA.
