Queen's University

Open Federalism and the Spending Power

A Symposium on Constitutional and Political Federalism

January 25 - 26, 2008
Queen's University at Kingston

The purpose of the conference is, first, to address the varieties of ways Ottawa and the provinces share roles and responsibilities in the day to day practice of Canadian federalism and then to compare these practices with institutional frameworks provided by our Constitution. The conference will then address the potential, in light of practices of "open federalism," for providing more principled approaches to power sharing and in particular for a more principled (and constitutional) approach to the exercise of power.

You can find the working paper series on the spending power here.
