Forging business-labour partnerships : the emergence of sector councils in Canada ( Book )
8 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 288 libraries worldwide
The recent emergence of joint business-labour sector councils represents a major innovation in Canadian industrial relations. The federal government and certain provincial governments have developed these councils as a key component of their human-resource development initiative. This collection brings together the views of economists, political scientists, and industrial-relations specialists on this important experiment.The authors suggest that, despite its innovative spirit, the sectoral initiative is fragile. Its future viability and wider diffusion depend on mutual trust and the long-term commitment of labour, management, and governments. Still, the consensus-building approach is seen as a remarkable achievement in Canada's adversarial institutional climate, with the potential to transform the nature and direction of Canadian labour-management relationships.In bringing together a wide range of views on sector councils, this book is a singular resource for all those interested in industrial relations, labour economics, and public policy

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 104 libraries worldwide
"Ian Stewart was a major force in public policy research, analysis and advice in Ottawa from the mid-1960's to the early 1980's. In his work as a public servant Ian continually brought solid research and analysis to public policy issues, including the role of the state. As we deal with the many challenges ahead, we need more of this approach. This volume contains contributions from leading Canadian researchers and policy advisers that discuss - in the tradition of Ian Stewart - specific public policy issues and the role of an intelligent government in addressing them." --Back cover

This is because of the large number of possible indicators that could be chosen to track trends in living standards. This report, which represents the living standards domain of the Canadian Index of Wellbeing, provides a comprehensive overview of trends in a number of indicators of living standards over the 1981-2010 period in Canada

Human capital and productivity in British Columbia a productivity discussion paper by Alexander Murray( file )
5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 63 libraries worldwide
"In most respects, British Columbia is performing extremely well in human capital development. The province's performance is above average according to the majority of the indicators we have analyzed. Relative to both the rest of Canada and other OECD countries, British Columbia is a leader in human capital development. However, there is room for improvement. We have identified four key areas in which improvements would be likely to contribute to productivity growth in British Columbia: the underutilization of the skills of recent immigrants; the poor educational outcomes of Aboriginal people; the below-average production of advanced human capital through graduate training; and the problem of high school non-completion."

An index of economic well-being for Canada by Lars Osberg( Book )

The objective of this paper is to develop an index of economic well-being for Canada for 1971-97 using a framework originally laid out by Lars Osberg (1985). The four components of well-being taken into account in this approach are explained: effective per-capita consumption flows and flows of household production & other unmarked goods & services; net societal accumulation of stocks of productive resources; poverty and inequality as indicated by the Gini index, and depth & incidence of poverty; and indicators of insecurity, particularly economic insecurity from unemployment, ill health, single parent poverty, and poverty in old age. Estimates of the overall index and each component are presented and the index is compared with other measures of economic welfare such as per-capita gross domestic product
