Forging business-labour partnerships : the emergence of sector councils in Canada ( Book )
4 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 153 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

New directions for intelligent government in Canada : papers in honour of Ian Stewart ( Book )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 67 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 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( Book )
5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
In 2007, the BC Progress Board identified British Columbia's lagging productivity growth as a major concern for both the public and private sectors. The Board commissioned the Centre for the Study of Living Standards (CSLS) to write a report on productivity drivers in British Columbia and to suggest strategic areas for improvement. The report identified five areas for improvement: investment, education, innovation, resource reallocation, and trade and migration. The present report examines the strategic area of education, or human capital. The body of the report contains a discussion of how human capital is measured and what is known about its effects on productivity and other economic outcomes; an overview of human capital infrastructure in British Columbia; an analysis of the province's human capital development outcomes; a discussion of two populations with unique human capital challenges--recent immigrants and Aboriginal people; and policy recommendations relevant to each of the four human capital challenge areas for improvement.--Includes text from document

Beyond GDP measuring economic well-being in Canada and the Provinces, 1981-2010 by Lars Osberg( file )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
This report presents new estimates of the Index of Economic Well-being (IEWB) and its four domains (consumption flows, stocks of wealth, economic equality and economic security) for Canada and the provinces for the 1981-2010 period. It finds that the IEWB advanced at a 0.78 per cent average annual growth rate over the period, below the 1.32 per cent growth for GDP per capita. Both the consumption and wealth domains experienced solid advances over the period, but these developments were offset by declines in the equality and economic security domains. The recent recession caused a decline in the IEWB for Canada, driven by declines in wealth and economic security

The Levy Institute measure of economic well-being estimates for Canada, 1999 and 2005 ( file )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
This report presents estimates of the Levy Institute Measure of Economic Well-;Being (LIMEW) for a representative sample of Canadian households in 1999 and 2005. The results indicate that there was only modest growth in the average Canadian household's total command over economic resources in the six years between 1999 and 2005. Although inequality in economic well-being increased slightly over the 1999-2005 period, the LIMEW was more equally distributed across Canadian households than more common income measures (such as after-tax income) in both 1999 and 2005. The median household's economic well-being was lower in Canada than in the United States in both years
