The role of the courts in the recognition of language rights by Marie-Ève Hudon( )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The role of the courts in Canada has changed a great deal over the years. From Confederation to the 1960s, the courts played a minor role in the protection of individual rights. Their primary interest in those years was the constitutional separation of powers; in the name of parliamentary supremacy, they left it to the legislators to protect and ensure respect for civil freedoms. After the Canadian Human Rights Bill was adopted in 1960, the government assigned to the courts responsibility for guaranteeing a number of individual rights in areas of federal jurisdiction

CBC/Radio-Canada : overview and key issues by Marion Ménard( )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

CBC/Radio-Canada (the Corporation) has played a unique role as Canada's national public broadcaster for more than 75 years. Whether by television, radio or Internet, CBC/Radio-Canada is available nearly everywhere across Canada. It is one of the few federal institutions that reach thousands of households across the country on a daily basis, a significant presence for a federal institution. However, the Corporation is also the subject of heated debate. Its supporters praise its commitment to Canadian content, while its critics say it presents unfair competition for private broadcasters. The purpose of this paper is not to resolve this debate, but rather to provide an overview of the various facets of CBC/Radio-Canada's operations. First, it looks at the Corporation's mandate and the services it offers, as well as the licences for radio and television services that were renewed by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) in May 2013. Second, it examines the Corporation's governance and the most recent special examination report published by the Office of the Auditor General (OAG) of Canada. Third, it provides a general overview of the Corporation's revenues and expenses since 2008-2009, including the effects the Deficit Reduction Action Plan, announced in the 2012 federal budget, will have on the Corporation. The last part is a general discussion on the role of CBC/Radio-Canada in a Canadian broadcasting system undergoing extensive change

Canada's electoral process : frequently asked questions by André Barnes( )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Voter turnout at the federal level in Canada has been declining since 1988, although the modest upsurge in turnout for the January 2006 general election was a welcome departure from an 18-year trend. Indeed, the progressive decline witnessed during the four general elections before 2006, as well as the turnout for the 2008 general election - the lowest ever recorded at the federal level - is a matter of concern for policy-makers
The Canada Social Transfer past, present and future considerations by James Gauthier( )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Canada Social Transfer (CST) is the primary federal contribution in Canada to provincial and territorial social programs related to post-secondary education (PSE), social assistance and social services, and programs for children. Under section 24.3 of the Federal-Provincial Fiscal Arrangements Act, to receive their full share of funding, provinces and territories must meet the sole criterion that no person is required to live in a province or territory for a minimum period before becoming eligible to receive social assistance. The Act also states that the CST is to be provided to finance social programs in a manner that gives provinces and territories flexibility, and encourages federal, provincial and territorial governments to coordinate the development of shared principles and objectives for these social programs
