La protection sociale canadienne

@ Law & Society

Comme citoyen canadien on est appelé a faire partie d’un esprit de communauté social. Par le bien de nos contributions, on peut se fier à une gamme de services de santé, des régimes a la retraite, assurance emploi, de l’aide au plus démunis, la subvention de l’éducation: tout ces domaines dans lesquels on puise une certaine sécurité sociale. En fait, comme dans la plupart des pays industrialisés, l’état moderne – au Canada, dans les provinces – occupe une place importante dans la protection sociale de ces citoyens : l’état-providence qui littéralement protège ses citoyens, et qui aide à établir l’espace de consensus social et les droits et responsabilités des citoyens.
