Globalization and the Modernization of Canadian Labour Policy
AbstractThis paper considers the potential effects of globalization on a Canadian approach to achieving greater economic competitiveness and social well-being that relies heavily upon a new "human capital strategy" as well as the need to modernize traditional labour policy. The discussion focuses on issues that include the impact of globalization on equity and distributional outcomes, economic integration and the utilization of human capital, and globalization and the parameters of a new human capital strategy. The paper concludes with some thoughts on globalization and the need to establish a Canadian strategy to modernizing labour policy, including a focus on a renewal of institutions, better coordination across current policy domains, and greater focus on the international dimension of labour, especially the development of supranational frameworks
