The Great Social Transformation: Implications for the Social Role of Government in Ontario

by Judith Maxwell

This paper was commissioned in the Spring of 2002 by the Panel on the Role of Government, chaired by Ron Daniels, Dean of the University of Toronto Law School. It was one of a number of papers designed to set the scene for the Panel's research program and consultations with the people of Ontario. It therefore provides a very broad survey of the way in which the patterns of family, work and community life of the people of Ontario have been transformed in recent decades.
