CRDCN 2017 National Conference

The many faces of inequality:
from measurement to policy

In 2017 Canadians across the country were celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Confederation by attending special events and happenings, by learning about key historical figures and milestones, and by remembering collective achievements and successes. While much was achieved during this century and a half which could rightfully be celebrated, Canada still faces critical issues that remain unaddressed or not fully addressed, calling for reflection and for action.The CRDCN 2017 annual conference examined some of these persistent issues by focusing on the many faces of inequality in Canada. Over 50 researchers presented their research results during the conference, and with their permission, several presentations are available below.

Keynote addresses

  • Miles Corak, Divided landscapes of economic opportunity: The Canadian geography of intergenerational mobility
