A Work in Progress: Completing the Devolution Revolution in Canada’s North By Ken Coates and Greg Poelzer
This report, co-authored by Ken Coates and Greg Poelzer, examines the process of devolution (the transfer of government power, authority, and resources from the national government to sub-national governments) and its implications for Canada’s North. While the authors note that devolution will empower the territorial governments, they also outline some of the challenges presented by the transformation.
