Child Poverty and the Canadian Welfare State
From Entitlement to Charity
By (author) Shereen Ismael
Child Poverty and the Canadian Welfare State by Shereen Ismael
Book DescriptionIn 2005, 1.2 million children in Canada were living below the poverty level. This represents a 20 percent increase since 1989, the year that the federal government unanimously passed a resolution to eliminate child poverty by 2000. To understand the state of children's welfare, Child Poverty and the Canadian Welfare State reviews Canadian social policy reform, and discovers that the welfare of poor children is a casualty of the war on the welfare state launched by opposing political ideologies. This study surveys the shift from entitlement to charity from the perspective of social policy reform.
