Aboriginal Policy Research Volume V Setting the Agenda for Change
Co-chaired by Dan Beavon of Indian and Northern Affairs Canada, Jerry White of the University of Western Ontario, and Peter Dinsdale of the National Association of Friendship Centres, the conference promoted interaction between researchers, policy-makers, and Aboriginal peoples. It expanded knowledge of the social, economic, and demographic determinants of Aboriginal well-being, and sought to identify and facilitate the means by which this knowledge may be translated into effective policies.
The fifth volume in the Aboriginal Policy Research series derives from the proceedings of a pre-conference workshop on gender issues related to defining identity and Indian status (often referred to as Bill C-31). This book has two guest editors, Wendy Cornet and Erik Anderson, who were instrumental in the organizing of the workshop.
