Canadians and Regional Development at Home and in the Third World (bilingual)
Benjamin Higgins, Donald J. Savoie
Publisher: Canadian Institute for Research on Regional Development
Canada is a country that has attached high priority to regional development, regional policy, and regional planning, both at home and abroad; but the way in which regional policy is formulated, regional planning undertaken, and regional development programs implemented, is very, very different in the two contexts. The authors set themselves the task of assembling and editing a volume of comparative case studies of Canadian regional development planning ventures at home and abroad, with the aim of explaining and understanding these differences.
