Canadian Federalism

Since the 1970s, the IRPP has been a recognized authority on the complex and thorny issues surrounding the Canadian federation. This research program contributed to the ongoing federalism debate through research and activities on the social union framework agreement, the Council of the Federation, health care reform, fiscal federalism (reform of equalization and social transfers) and changes to the federal spending power, among other topics.
