The Good News from Manitoba: How one provincial government has evolved into a leader in CED policy & programming
Garry Loewen explains how Manitoba has evolved into a leader in CED policy and programming. The party in power is one key factor. Another has been the growth over the years of a local "CED community" from which that administration can draw talent and advice. A third factor was the evolution of the Canadian CED Network, whose draft national policy framework became an important guide to Manitoba policy development. The result is a policy and program framework that is further ahead in Manitoba than any other jurisdiction in English Canada. It is interesting to compare this article reporting on policy change with the submission to the Parliamentary Committee on Social Security Reform presented in Lewis (1994). Also, compare the recommendations of Perry related to designing government programs (2002) and reflect on how well (or not) Manitoba is doing.
