Citizens' Values and the Canadian Social Architecture: Evidence from the Citizens' Dialogue on Canada's Future

by Mary Pat MacKinnon

The eighth of the Social Architecture Papers from CPRN's Family Network, is based on the premise that "citizens' values must be incorporated into the framing and design characteristics of a new social architecture."

And just what are those values today?

Mary Pat MacKinnon, Director of CPRN's Public Involvement Network, answers that question in Citizens' Values and the Canadian Social Architecture: Evidence from Citizens' Dialogue on Canada's Future. To do so, she draws on the results of last year's Citizens' Dialogue on Canada's Future. More than 400 participants in ten day-long dialogues from coast to coast grappled with the economic and social changes of the past 50 years and their implications for the roles of governments, businesses, citizens and communities in ensuring the well-being of Canadians.
