Canadian Politic History (HIST*3160)

Code and section: HIST*3160*01

Term: Fall 2015

Instructor: M. Hayday


This course analyzes the development of Canadian politics and public policy from Confederation to the Chrétien years. A major component of the course will study the changing structures that shaped Canada’s political development, including elections, political parties and constitutional change. While the main focus of the course will be on federal politics, we will also look at several developments at the provincial level through a number of case studies. We will also spend a significant amount of time analyzing the development of public policy in Canada, including social welfare policy, foreign policy and identity policies such as bilingualism and multiculturalism.
