The community of people working on public policy issues in the GTA extends far beyond Queen’s Park or City Hall.
A priority for the Mowat Centre is to connect professionals from across this community by bringing together people from the public, private, non-profit, academic and media sectors. On November 18, we will be hosting the fourth in our “Policy in a Pub” series of events to hear from each other and discuss shared interests in an informal setting.
The event will feature three speakers to stimulate discussion by offering their thoughts on the future of Canada’s social architecture. Canada’s social policies and programs have barely changed since the 1960s, despite major transformations in our economy and society. These policies continue to drift further from their goals and serve fewer Canadians, less effectively. Earlier this year, the Mowat Centre led a project with other think tanks from across the country to explore these issues, called Renewing Canada’s Social Architecture. These experts will offer their own take on how Canada should approach this challenge.
