Neo-Liberal Strategies to Cut Costs in Settlement Services: Cost Recovery and Devolution
AbstractThe author considers the range of settlement services funded by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) tracing the relative costs of settlement services in both Quebec and the rest of Canada. Government cost cutting and recovery strategies applied to settlement services are reviewed against an explanation of neo-liberalist ideology as it has been interpreted by the Federal government (1993-1997). Some of the arguments put forward against cost recovery are also reviewed.
