Welcome to CCPA's new website


We've enhanced search and sort functions to make it easier for you to find what you're looking for -- quickly and easily. Use the Find Publications (top left box) to quickly locate a specific research publication. You can also sort publications by type, publishing office (the CCPA has a National Office and five provincial offices) and/or issue area (we publish research on a wide range of social, economic and environmental issues). Or you can search the entire website using the Search or Advanced Search (very top right of your screen).


Our new multimedia studio features lots of videos, slideshows and interactive tools. Watch a slideshow that explains the growing gap between the rich and the rest of us. Hear from people living on welfare about what it's like to get by on less than $1,000/month in one of Canada's most expensive cities. Listen to Naomi Klein talk about The Shock Doctrine, her latest book. Find out about the incredible CEO pay race (spoiler alert: Canada's top CEOs earn as much as the 'average' Canadian will bring home in an entire year... by just after 9AM on January 1). And much more.


Tell your friends and colleagues about the CCPA, or about specific ideas, information, videos, publications... Use the Share This feature to submit pages to social networking sites, or the Email pages directly to your contacts (at the top of every page).


Almost everything CCPA publishes is available free on this website. And we welcome you to use it—please feel free to copy articles or whole publications for use in classrooms, show videos in workshops or seminars, use our facts and information in letters to the editor or politicians... For more information, see our terms of (re)use.


Join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter, or related blogs -- such as Relentlessly Progressive Economics, featuring posts from many of our researchers or PolicyNote.ca, offering progressive analysis from the CCPA's BC Office.


Our new website features an improved shopping cart system to make it easier for you to purchase CCPA books (one of the very few kinds of publications not available free online) or to join or donate to the Centre. All online transactions are fully secure.


The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives is a member-based research institute. In fact, our single largest source of funding is individual contributions. Join or donate today—and become one of our core funders.

Stay informed.
