Shifting the Paradigm: Knowledge and Learning for Canada's Future

by Jane Jenson

This paper proceeds with the logic that in order to set out some of the public policy implications of current trends and the choices that currently confront Canadians, it is necessary to step back two steps.  Before we can consider our choices, we need to identify the options and the room to maneuver.  But even before we can know those, we need to map the social knowledge in place and the structural changes that are challenging it.  The paper addresses the paradigm itself, recounts the shifts in economic and social structures that are remaking Canadian society, and identifies some of the choices that Canadians face.
