### Social Policy Trends: The Holidays and Social Policy Issues

Ronald Kneebone
Most social trends show little in the way of monthly variation. Rates of poverty and measures of inequality show little in the way of variation from one month to another. However, some issues of concern to social policy advocates, researchers, and governments take a noticeable turn during the holiday season. Favourable breaks in these trends remind us that the choices we make, when coordinated and acted upon simultaneously, can have noticeable effects on the lives...

### Healthcare Funding Policies for Reducing Fragmentation and Improving Health Outcomes

Jason Sutherland
This policy paper examines potential roles of ‘funding policy’ to address yawning gaps in continuity of healthcare delivery and inequality in health outcomes across Canada. Funding policy is but one tool available to healthcare decision makers to affect the volume, type, timeliness and cost of healthcare services, products and devices provided to a country’s residents. Healthcare funding policies involve trade-offs and conflicts that may drive the ‘price’ of change to be too high. As Canada...

### The oil production response to Alberta's government-mandated quota

Amir Hallak, Adam Jensen, Gilbert Lybbert & Lucija Muehlenbachs
Two years ago, the Alberta government put in place a temporary oil-production quota. However, the quota’s impact could well be felt in the province’s oil production for years to come. The quota applied only to firms producing more than 10,000 barrels of oil per day and was instituted as a response to pipeline constraints that caused Alberta oil prices to be much lower than prices elsewhere. Production from both oilsands mines and oil wells dropped...

### Crisis and Opportunity: How Canadian Bachelor of Education Programs Responded to the Pandemic

Patricia Danyluk
This collection examines how Bachelor of Education programs across Canada adapted during the COVID-19 pandemic, covering the period immediately after the pandemic was declared and the year following (March 2020 to March 2021). The collection is divided into four sections focused on programmatic changes, pedagogical developments, practicum adaptations, and equity with an overall consistent concern for preservice teacher learning and well-being.

### From National Accords to Bilateral Agreements: Transforming Canadian Health Care Intergovernmentalism

Tom McIntosh & Alanna DeCorby
This paper examines the transition from the “era of the health accords” (from 2000 to 2017) to the new regime of individual bilateral agreements between Ottawa and each of the provinces and territories, allocating federal health transfers and setting agreed-upon health-reform priorities in each jurisdiction. The paper argues that the health accords of 2000, 2003 and 2004 were essentially unsuccessful for a number of reasons. First, they tended to raise expectations among the public, health...

### The True Costs of Trade Wars: An Analysis of the US-China Trade War

Taylor Hides
For the past year, the on-going US-China trade war has dominated headlines and caused increasing unrest in the global community. The tensions have escalated to a point where by the end of 2019, it is likely that the US and China will have tariffs covering nearly 100 per cent of imports from each other. Along with such expansive protectionist policies will come significant impacts on the US, China, and the rest of the world. There...

### Goal Orientation and Learning Readiness: Evidence Among Freshmen in Selected Kenyan Universities

Evelyne Kwamboka Mose, Peter JO Aloka & Benard Mwebi
This study, which adopted an ex post facto research design, investigated the relationship between goal orientation and learning readiness among first year students in three public universities in Kenya. A sample size of 372 first years from the three universities were obtained using both stratified and simple random sampling techniques. The Goal Questionnaire for Students (GQS) and the Learning Readiness Questionnaire (LRQ) were used to collect data. The findings reported Eta squared (.547) which implied...

### Experiential Learning through Community-based Experiences: A Graduate Student Perspective

Iffat Naeem & Fabiola E. Aparicio-Ting
Experiential learning (EL) has become essential for graduate students to meet the demanding nature of professional environments, equipping them with skills in leadership, problem solving, and civic consciousness. Community based learning (CBL), as an identified EL strategy, involves a collaborative learning model emphasizing group membership and community engagement. CBL not only enhances graduate skills, but also places graduate student research within a larger social context, and encourages deeper understanding of their discipline. This paper discusses...

### Reciprocal Mentoring as a Method to Enhance Doctoral Success

Andrew Mardjetko & Christina White Prosser
This article explores peer mentoring in doctoral studies, specifically through the students’ lived experiences in an interdisciplinary doctoral program cohort. Through reflexive conceptualization and the definition of mentorship, the lived experiences of the authors are portrayed. The roles and benefits of mentoring activities are identified and connected to the doctoral experiences through the various stages of degree completion, i.e., candidacy and ethics. Although learners were admitted to a doctoral degree in education, the individual’s intake...
