International Council on Social Welfare, Ottawa (Ontario).
In this report the concept of equal opportunities and strategies for implementing social welfare programs in Canada are discussed. Existing laws and services are described. Access to services and the extension of welfare rights are considered. Definitions of poverty, strategies for the redistribution of income, and obstacles preventing income redistribution are examined. The question of equal opportunities for minorities, including the French language population, native peoples, women, immigrants, and the poor, is viewed in light of government priorities. Strategies for creating equal opportunities in politics and administration and among geo-political areas within Canada are suggested. International cooperation in the attainment of social welfare rights is explored in terms of the Canadian attitude towards social development. (WI)
