State, society, and the development of Canadian federalism by Richard Simeon( Book )

8 editions published between 1982 and 1990 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Canada-United States free trade by Royal Commission on the Economic Union and Development Prospects for Canada( Book )

7 editions published between 1982 and 1985 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume contains the research papers which have been commissioned by the Research Advisory Group on Trade Policy (Economics) on the issues surrounding a possible Canada-U.S. free trade agreement. The papers are of three types: commissioned research studies, staff papers which summarize the proceedings of three research symposia, and a selection of the papers presented at these symposia. At each symposium, participants were invited to present short papers based on their existing work relevant to the issues being discussed. Many of these proved to be extremely helpful both to the Commission staff and to Commissioners in drawing together the thinking of the wider research community on issues surrounding Canada-U.S. free trade. Therefore, slightly longer and revised versions of some of these have been included here to help focus the debate which we expect will follow publication of the Commission's report and research output."--p. 1

Canada and the new international law of the sea by Douglas M Johnston( Book )

6 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Third United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS 3) culminated in the adoption of the United Nations convention on the law of the sea in 1982. Since then 150 countries, including Canada, have signed this historic treaty. It affects Canada's four major ocean industries: fishing, offshore petroleum, shipping and ocean mining. As Canada contemplates ratification of this agreement, it must consider these as well as several other maritime matters, including transit management, offshore development, marine-technology development and ocean-science policy. This volume delineates the issues and their implications for Canada's future at sea, and recommends the establishment of an independent advisory body to ensure serious and comprehensive treatment of maritime concerns."--p. [129]
Trade, industrial policy, and international competition by Richard G Harris( Book )

7 editions published between 1982 and 1985 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the first time since John A. Macdonald set out a strategy for economic development in the National Policy of 1879, there is general recognition among informed Canadians that changes in the economic structure of Canadian industry are inevitable and that the policy issues concerned with these changes are difficult and pressing. What type of economic structure should be encouraged? How should it be encouraged? What is the role for the market system and international trade? Is there a case for an "industrial strategy" involving protection and promotion of selected industries? These are some of the questions which led to the creation of the Royal Commission for which this study was prepared."--p. 2
Canada and Quebec, past and future : an essay by Daniel Latouche( Book )

9 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Quebec's search for an altered status within Confederation was the initial catalyst in the constitutional revision process that culminated in the 1982 agreement. It is a profound irony of contemporary Canadian politics that Quebec is excluded from that agreement. Daniel Latouche sets out, in this volume, to explain that outcome and to explore the possibilities for a new accommodation."--p. [162]
The Supreme Court of Canada as an instrument of political change by Royal Commission on the Economic Union and Development Prospects for Canada( Book )

11 editions published between 1982 and 1986 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Canadian constitutional law since World War II has been influenced by a number of widely varying social factors. Among them should be noted remote economic and structural influences, undoubtedly resulting from the centrifugal forces preceding the concentration of capital, the requirements for exploitation of capital, and the need to adapt market sizes to the size of economic units in which the conditions determining profitable economic activity have changed. Since Confederation was a product of these forces, how could it escape their influence as it matured?"--p. 1
Bureaucracy in Canada : control and reform by S. L Sutherland( Book )

8 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first purpose of this study, derived from this formidable task, is to present an historical view of the evolution of public service bureaucracies as political institutions over the past three or four decades. While our historical analysis builds on existing literature, in three areas this literature proved inadequate to deal with the concerns of the Commission mandate."--Preface
Consumer protection, environmental law, and corporate power by Royal Commission on the Economic Union and Development Prospects for Canada( Book )

5 editions published between 1982 and 1985 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few areas of the law affect the average Canadian as directly or as dramatically as consumer protection. As consumers of complex goods and services we are exposed on a daily basis to problems of product safety, fair trade practices, product quality and dispute resolution. Most of the time we can resolve the problem ourselves - through discussion and compromise and without the help of law. Sometimes, though, we cannot. We need the help of law both as a benchmark and as a basis for action. We expect the law in these cases to be readily accessible and reasonably responsive. Because the problems in the area of consumer protection law are so pervasive, they can justifiably demand the best that the legal system can deliver. Large or small, consumer protection problems are important both to the individual and to society at large."--p. 1
Canadian economic development and the international trading system : constraints and opportunities by Michael Hart( Book )

9 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Canada's economic development, as well as government economic development policies, are significantly conditioned by factors external to Canada. As a relatively small, "open" economy, and as a large world trader, Canada is vulnerable to outside influences on its trade and economic performance. In order to foster stability and predictability in some of these forces, successive Canadian governments have given strong support to the development of formal international rules and relationships. In pursuing this objective, shared with many other governments, Canada has agreed to constraints on its own freedom of action because other international actors have sought stability and predictability in Canadian policies and actions in return for stability and predictability in their own. The result has been increasing interdependence among governments in managing their domestic economies."--p. 1
The Politics of Canada's economic relationship with the United States by Royal Commission on the Economic Union and Development Prospects for Canada( Book )

6 editions published between 1982 and 1986 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While the five studies in this volume are all concerned with aspects of Canada's economic relations with the United States, they approach the question more from the political than from the economic point of view. The first three are written with a Canadian perspective, and treat the issues involved both historically and analytically. The other two draw attention in particular to features of the American political system and to certain attitudes prevalent in the American policy community that could significantly influence the fate of current or future Canadian attempts to extend and secure the continental trading relationship."--p. 1
Intrastate federalism in Canada by Donald V Smiley( Book )

4 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The issues addressed in this study have a particular relevance to the mandate of the Royal Commission on the Economic Union and Development Prospects for Canada because of the impact which the character of central institutions within a federal system inevitably has upon the capacity of the federal government to mobilize resources and develop economic, social and foreign policies with a wide degree of support within the federation."--Authors' Preface
Public opinion and public policy in Canada : questions of confidence by Richard Johnston( Book )

6 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This monograph by Richard Johnston was fashioned in response to a desire of the Commission to analyze the underlying nature of support for the federal government and the Canadian national community, and to explore public opinion on numerous policy issues, primarily, but not exclusively, in the realm of economic policy. The result is a unique combination of data and scholarly interpretation which significantly advances our understanding of the citizen base of political authority and public policy in Canada. The analysis is nuanced and subtle, as befits the complexity of the subject matter."--Preface
Interest groups in the Canadian federal system by Hugh G Thorburn( Book )

8 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Interest groups have tended to develop relations with the level of government concerned with their respective activities: resource industries with provincial governments, for example, and pan-Canadian transportation and communications industries with the federal. They have become involved in policy-making through the elite-accommodation process and through formal opportunities offered in governmental forums that seek information and invite influence. But where friction has developed between the two levels of government, interest groups have found themselves frozen out while governments settled their disputes themselves."--p. [151]
Institutional reforms for representative government by Royal Commission on the Economic Union and Development Prospects for Canada( Book )

5 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published by the University of Toronto Press in cooperation with the Royal Commission on the Economic Union and Development Prospects for Canada and the Canadian Government Publishing Centre, Supply and Services Canada."
Division of powers and public policy by Royal Commission on the Economic Union and Development Prospects for Canada( Book )

7 editions published between 1982 and 1985 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a federation, a starting point for understanding the making of public policy is a constitutional division of powers. The studies in this volume bring together the perspectives of economics, law, and political science in an assessment of the structure and evolution of the sharing of responsibilities in a Canadian federal system. Each of the four papers brings a different approach to the common questions of how and why powers have evolved, and together the studies examine the implications of this evolution for future policy making."--Preface
Canadian industry in transition by Royal Commission on the Economic Union and Development Prospects for Canada( Book )

9 editions published between 1982 and 1986 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The papers in this volume discuss various aspects of the evolution of Canadian industrial structure in recent years. Industrial structure is defined here in the broad sense - encompassing the composition of national output, the organization of production at the market, firm and plant level, and the pattern of trade."--Preface
Regional aspects of confederation by John Whalley( Book )

6 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume considers the extent to which the regional effects of economic policies offset or compound each other. In assessing the implications for contemporary Confederation, the authors discuss regional effects of tariff and trade policies, energy policies, equalization and intergovernmental transfers, interregional barriers to the flow of both goods and services, and the federal tax transfer system."--p. [274]
Canadian industrial policy in action by Royal Commission on the Economic Union and Development Prospects for Canada( Book )

7 editions published between 1982 and 1985 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This paper discusses the three central issues in the industrial policy debate as it relates to Canada. These are: (a) the problems posed by federal-provincial and interprovincial industrial policy rivalry; (b) the pros and cons of targetting or picking winners; and (c) the role of proactive industrial and other policies in a positive adjustment program."--p. 1
Regulations, crown corporations, and administrative tribunals by Ivan Bernier( Book )

7 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the state decides to intervene in the private sector, it usually uses one of five methods: taxation, economic regulation or control, financial or technical assistance, and the granting of contracts and the creation or takeover of companies. The state uses three types of instruments to achieve its ends. It can intervene in the economy through its ministries and regulatory agencies; it can make use of private enterprise by granting contracts or financial assistance; and finally, it can establish companies, which are known as public corporations or, more precisely, Crown corporations. Such corporations fall somewhere between government institutions in the strict sense and private sector companies."--p. 1
