In this first comprehensive study centred on Canada, Gidengil argues that Canada has more in common with European countries than with its less generous and more stigmatizing neighbour (see also Daigneault et al. 2021: 243-4), which leads to different and more optimistic expectations about the feedback effect of Canadian social programs.

Launched by the World Health Organization, the Age-Friendly Cities (AFC) program has been adopted around the world as a framework for developing policies, services and spaces that support active ageing and enable older adults to live well.  In her book, The Right to an Age-Friendly City: Redistribution, Recognition and Senior Citizen Rights in Urban Spaces, Meghan Joy takes a detailed and critical look at the optimistic claims perpetuated by researchers, governments, and institutions that the program can address the challenges of population aging and empower older citizens to shape local policy.

At the Pleasure of the Crown: The Politics of Bureaucratic Appointments. UBC Press, 2020. 148 pp, with index.

There is an important gap in connecting skilled prospective public servants to opportunities within government institutions. Most students across various fields of studies have questions or uncertainties about their future careers. Even those studying public administration may still be on the fence about choosing the public service amidst all the criticism surrounding it. IPAC, for example, aims to fill this gap with the organisation of yearly events, such as speed mentoring events or workshops for students and new public servants. These events connect students with public servants to answer burning questions, such as: What should I know about the human resource processes? What kinds of skills should I develop to be a good public servant? What kind of job opportunities exist in the public service? What different departments exist, what are their differences and which one should I choose?
