Canada: The State of the Federation 2012
Regions, Resources and Resiliency

Working Papers Series

The 2012 IIGR State of the Federation conference examined the intergovernmental implications of the economic, political and social differences that characterise the provinces and regions of Canada.  In particular, it was concerned with the stresses and strains generated within the Canadian federation by widely differing resource endowments and the resulting disparities in fiscal capacities, the issue of “Dutch Disease,” and regional differences in public perceptions of the state of the federation.  The papers presented at the conference are presented here, as working papers, pending final editing and the publication of Canada: The State of the Federation 2012volume.
