Government of Canada is an introductory course that is designed to provide students with a basic understanding of the actors, institutions and processes of the Canadian Government and of Canadian Politics in the broadest sense. The essence of true citizenship, and good global citizenship, is building an understanding the institutions, actors, contexts and decision-making processes of the country where one lives, works and studies. The twin objectives of this introductory course on Canadian Politics are, first, to provide students with the knowledge and skills to enhance their understanding of Canadian society, polity and economy, and second, to inspire students to reflect on reforms that will make the country a better place.
