Sample: Introduction | Conclusion

A Canadian Priorities Agenda is the culmination of a two year IRPP project designed to initiate a broad-based and informed public debate on the economic and social policy choices and priorities for Canada over the medium term. The underlying theme of the project is scarcity of resources and the need for choice: the everyday reality for policy-makers is that governments have limited means at their disposal – be it revenue, manpower or political capital – and must therefore choose carefully which policies to pursue and which to leave behind.
