(3 credits – TG) 3 hours lecture
This course is designed for the Bachelor of Applied Policy Studies degree student, but is of interest to anyone who wishes to advance their understanding of key constitutional matters, government-level decision making, and policy development. This course will focus primarily on the Canadian federation. However, it will also explore other federal systems in a comparative setting, particularly the United States and Mexico, our continental partners in trade. With this course, students will acquire advanced knowledge of an essential aspect of Canadian constitutional, economic, and political life.
Prerequisite: Economics 1103, Political Science 1101 and 2231.
