Prerequisites:

COM101/COM111

This course is designed to provide an overview of the Canadian social welfare system from a historical and contemporary perspective and explores the ideology and values underlying the development of social welfare policies and programs. This course explores the social welfare landscape in Canada as it applies to a broad group of vulnerable populations (for example, children, First Nations' communities, families, unemployed, immigrants, and the elderly). It includes, for example, how ideology influences social policy, and shows that economic policy is social policy and vice versa.
