(OTTAWA) Social policy in Canada should go further to address the needs of Canada's poorest, according to a new report from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, titled Snakes and Ladders: A Policy Brief on Poverty Dynamics. The report's findings are based on a survey of studies looking at the mobility of people in and out of poverty. These studies provide more insight by tracking the same people over time, rather than taking a cross-section of the population each year.
OTTAWA--Canadians may view their country as a land of opportunity, but it is also a land of deep and abiding inequality in its distribution of personal wealth. This is the key conclusion of Rags and Riches: Wealth Inequality in Canada, a new CCPA study by social policy analyst Steve Kerstetter, a former Director of the National Council on Welfare.
