Responses to irregular migration in Morocco: Promising changes, persisting challenges3.

A public insurance plan would ensure universal coverage of long-term care needs more equitably and efficiently than would other financing options, and it would be more consistent with the “aging at home” approach, which is favoured by seniors and governments. Plus que toute autre option de financement, un régime d’assurance public des soins de longue durée offrirait une couverture universelle équitable et efficace, et il serait davantage compatible avec l’approche « vieillir chez soi » privilégiée par les aînés et préconisée par les gouvernements.

U.S. medical bankruptcies a myth; personal bankruptcy rate higher in Canada

The idea that large numbers of Americans are declaring bankruptcy due to medical expenses is a myth and the introduction of government-run health insurance in the U.S. will do nothing to reduce personal bankruptcies, concludes a new study from the Fraser Institute, an independent think tank.

Official Language Policies at the Federal Level in Canada: Costs and Benefits in 2006

The paper is divided into three main parts: the first presents the legal framework under which the federal government and federally regulated entities make decisions as to the internal and external usage of both official languages, the second presents the costs of these policies, and the third presents the benefits of these policies.

Taxes versus the Necessities of Life: The Canadian Consumer Tax Index, 2009

The Canadian tax system is complex and no single number can give a complete idea of who pays how much. That said, the Fraser Institute annually calculates the most comprehensive and easily understood indicator of the overall tax bill of the average Canadian family: Tax Freedom Day. This Alert examines what has happened to the tax bill of the average Canadian family over the past 47 years. To do so, we have constructed an index of the tax bill of the average Canada family, the Canadian Consumer Tax Index, for the period from 1961 to 2008.
