Inequality in Canada: Driving Forces, Outcomes and Policy
Income inequality has been at the forefront of public debate in Canada for quite some time and, according to recent evidence, it continues to rise. Yet there remains much to be learned about the rapidly changing labour market and earnings dynamics underlying this trend, as well as how these might evolve. To determine which policy approaches would be most effective in counteracting growing inequality while promoting economic growth, we need to better understand the forces at play.
This two-day conference is part of a joint research initiative by the Institute for Research on Public Policy and the Canadian Labour Market and Skills Researcher Network to provide new evidence on the causes and effects of growing income inequality in Canada, assess past and present policies and propose directions for the future. It will bring leading researchers in the field together with policy-makers and other stakeholders to inform and contribute to the debate on this issue of central importance to Canadian society.
While participation in this conference is open to all, the number of spaces is limited. We encourage you to register early.
