Catching Up to Reality: Building the Case for a New Social Model

by Jane Jenson

In this, the first of the Social Architecture Papers, Jane Jenson goes back to the 1940s and traces the way social and economic patterns have shifted over time. She identifies the new social realities of Canada in 2004, and argues that the roles and responsibilities of market, family, state and community need to catch up – the time has come for a new social model for Canada.
