The Canada NewStart Program.
Sloan, E. P.
This speech described the development and current status of the Canada NewStart Program, in which specially created corporations have been conducting action research on disadvantaged groups (largely Indians and Metis) in remote areas of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, and for undereducated persons in economically depressed areas of Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick. This research effort in adult education and the behavioral and social sciences was defined as "active, deliberate intervention to study or facilitate behavior change." Critical evaluations of the organizational model, research problems, and the formation and maintenance of competent interdisciplinary teams, were set forth. (Three references are included.) (LY)
