9780802080257: Changing the Rules: Canadian Regulatory Regimes and Institutions

After More Than a Decade of Deregulation and Privatization in Canada, the time is ripe for an examination of the regulatory' institutions that were reshaped, rebuilt, or newly created in the process. Concurrent with these internal changes, new international agreements such NAFTA and global telecommunications have had a major impact on regulators and the communities being regulated.

This book examines changes to key institutions and argues for a greater breadth of institutional analysis. It also examines particular regulatory bodies such as the Canadian Radio and Television Commission, the National Energy Board, and the Canadian Transport Agency. Furthermore, the analysis extends to civic regulation, the regulation of privacy, internal trade regulation, international trade and finance.

The individual authors focus on federal regulation but include reference to federal-provincial developments. The book is structured around a, framework in which regulation is cast as an interplay among four regimes: sectoral, framework or horizontal, intra-state and Cabinet, and international.

These regimes both converge and collide but also have basic internal attributes that cause them to function independently. The editors and authors also look at such themes as the lessons learned in the theory and political arts of Canadian regulation; the regulator?' capacity of the Canadian state; regulatory accountability; and the Canadian regulatory culture in a comparative context.

The result is a book that brings a vitality to the ever more complex subject of government regulation in Canada.
