AsPublic Policy in Canada: An Introductionmoves into its sixth edition, this classic text continues to chronicle the changing landscape of public policy issues in Canada, and the political, economic, and social environments and events that drive such change. While the text's structure has remained the same-the first part covers the basic concepts, theories, and approaches to public policy and the second introduces specific policy fields-the material covered in each part has evolved to meet user needs and reflect developments in Canadian policy. Part I offers extended coverage of the economic roots of policy, updated statistics that shed light on the ever-shifting context for policy-making in Canada, as well as a new chapter on evaluating policy, reporting it to the public, and measuring its impact. Part II examines in detail macroeconomic affairs, social programs, health care, the family, Aboriginal peoples, and the environment, highlighting the latest developments in each field. In each chapter, clear and accessible writing in addition to tools such as special topic boxes, an updated art program, discussion questions, glossary of key terms, and an annotated list of relevant web resources support and engage the reader.
