Published on 07/02/2013

The Caledon Institute of Social Policy celebrated its 20th anniversary on October 10, 2012, at the Munk School of Global Affairs in the University of Toronto.  The gathering cast a large net of ideas and proposals for the reform of Canadian social policy.  Focusing on some of the major work undertaken by principals Ken Battle, Sherri Torjman and Michael Mendelson, the event served as a platform for looking at future policy development.  Guests Andrew Jackson, André Picard and Richard Simeon each joined a session to provide comments and give their own views.  The event also included a presentation by Environics president Michael Adams on issues related to Canada’s data crisis.  James Hughes moderated the proceedings.

This publication includes opening remarks by Caledon co-founder Alan Broadbent; the addresses by the Caledon principals and their respondents in the areas of poverty and inequality, disability and the aging society, and fiscal federalism; and Michael Adam’s speech on datacide.

The proceedings end with concluding remarks by Caledon board member Tom Barber.
