Behind the Issues: Ontario 2003 - Whatever happened to Welfare?

Behind the Issues by Michael Olephant

Behind the Issues: Ontario 2003 is a series of short studies published by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) during the 2003 Ontario provincial election. Behind the Issues provides factual background information regarding the issues shaping the provincial election, , enabling voters to make informed decisions and effectively evaluate each party’s platform.

In his report, Michael Oliphant examines the issues of welfare. In the 1995 and 1999 elections, welfare was a hot-button issue; however, it is noticeably absent from the 2003 debate. Despite its disappearance from campaign debates, Oliphant contends the need for welfare is increasing in Ontario. He outlines many studies advocating increased social assistance for children living in poverty; he also outlines each provincial party’s position regarding welfare.
