  • Immigrant Skilled Workers: Should Canada Attract More Foreign Students?
    This paper examines federal and provincial immigration policy and explores some important issues relating to the process of admission of immigrants to Canada. It also analyzes areas where changes are needed to maximize the benefits from immigration to the Canadian economy faced with the challenges of aging population and changing labour market conditions. The paper emphasizes that immigration policy must be focused not simply on bringing in more people, but people who are likely to adapt to the Canadian lifestyle, contribute economically, abide by laws in the country, and become self-supporting.
  • Health Spending in Saskatchewan: Recent Trends, Future Options
    In our world of defined resources, and competing social needs, what is the best approach to financing an expensive – and increasingly costly – health care system? Mr. Daniel Hickey in his timely, thought-provoking study on health care in Saskatchewan examines this question through the two related issues of health expenditure trends and financing options.
  • A Conceptual Comparative Analysis Between the British and Canadian Mad Cow Crisis: The Cost of Learning
    As evidenced by the British and Canadian BSE crises, the emergence of complex diseases in the food chain globally has made food safety policy vitally important. This paper compares and analyzes the events that occurred within the British and Canadian beef industries.
  • Standing on Guard Canadian Identity, Globalization and Continental Integration
    For Canada, living so close to the United States, globalization often means Americanization. Yet, even in the face of rapid globalization and the implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement, Canadians have become more conscious of their identity.
  • Assessing Urban Aboriginal Housing Needs in Southern Alberta
    Currently, more Aboriginal people live in cities than on reserves in western Canada. This population is also growing rapidly with Aboriginal people representing a significant percentage of the overall population in many prairie cities. Many studies have emphasized the over-representation of Aboriginal people in the homeless population, but little work has been conducted to determine how those Aboriginal individuals who currently rent or own homes succeeded in doing so. In this paper, Yale Belanger investigates two primary questions: (1) What current housing conditions are confronting Aboriginal people in Lethbridge, and (2) How do landlords view Aboriginal renters.
