Deregulation in Canada: A disaster in the making

In Canada, regulations adopted by every level of government have historically helped to make this one of the safest, most desirable places to raise a family. But a slow, steady, and quiet erosion of regulations by our governments put Canadians' health, safety and well-being increasingly at risk. This primer on regulation, by the CCPA's Trish Hennessy, tells the story of Canada's slippery slide into deregulation. It also provides resource information to learn more about regulation issues in Canada. Click to read the primer in English or in French.

The Public Service Alliance of Canada has a long history of standing up for strong regulations in Canada. They've launched a series of videos entitled "Keeping Canadians safe." The videos portray technical service workers articulating with pride, knowledge, and enthusiasm the important work they do to keep our skies, seas, and environment safe for all Canadians.
