Regional Development in Canada

eBook - 1992
Rate this:
The federal government established the Department of Regional Economic Expansion (DREE) in 1969 and, four years later, released it from the traditional Ottawa-based departmental mould when it initiated a bold new decentralized approach to DREE's operations. DREE was dissolved in 1982 and replaced by a series of other experiments to improve regional economies. McGee argues that the 1982 move away from the DREE model of regional development was a mistake, and suggests that the predilection of governments for reorganising existing instruments of regional development policy and creating new ones has been detrimental to regional economies. Mindful of the new realities of the global economy within which Canada and its regions must compete, and of the promise/threat of rapidly changing technology, McGee identifies the need for a new order of priorities with which governments can meet these challenges and opportunities.
