24th MISC Annual Conference: Federalism and Canada's Shifting Political Landscape

Join us on March 21st and 22nd for our 24th Annual Conference, which will feature 9 different panels that will be discussing several different issues facing today's Canadians, and how they relate to federalism and our shifting political landscape. Hosted in collaboration with the Institute for Research on Public Policy (IRPP), the objective of this year’s conference is to improve our understanding of how recent and forthcoming provincial elections and other ongoing political trends are likely to impact federalism, intergovernmental relations and public policy in Canada. More specifically, the conference addresses the following questions: First, how are recent and forthcoming elections in provinces like Alberta, BC, Ontario, and Quebec and related political trends likely to impact debates over crucial policy issues ranging from trade, energy policy, and environmental protection to immigration, and Indigenous affairs? Second, how will public opinion and the media shape these debates and, more broadly, the future of Canadian federalism? Third, what is the potential impact of these intergovernmental debates on the next federal elections and public policy in Canada?
