2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document has been prepared as a contribution to the ongoing debate on the elements required to bring about equitable and appropriate reforms to the social security system, based on a set of values espoused by most Canadians and reflecting a balance between social and fiscal responsibilities. The document outlines various principles on which an improved social security system might be based, as well as the elements that a reformed system must address, such as personal safety, relief of poverty, arts/culture access, job creation, economic health, infrastructure development, education and training, public health, and access to a viable livelihood. Recommendations are made concerning each element. Finally, the document examines the effects of proposed social spending cuts on the Regional Municipality of Hamilton-Wentworth
