Synopsis: The last century has brought major changes in how disability is defined and conceptualized. The changes have, in turn, influenced disability policies. Between 1900 and 1970, disability policy was shaped by medical, vocational and social rehabilitation paradigms which focused on the individual medical and socio-economic situations of those with disabilities.

In the 1970s, advocacy groups challenged existing disability policies at the federal level for the removal of barriers to disabled Canadians' participation in society. They proposed a socio-political paradigm of disability which conceptualized disability as a failure of society to adjust to the needs of people with disability. The federal government was ready to listen because of changes occurring during the International Year of Disabled Persons (1981) and the publication of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms (1982). Numerous policy reforms have been introduced in subsequent years, but many persons with disabilities still experience difficulties in living daily lives.

This book examines disability policy development as part of a larger evolutionary process in Canadian social policy formation. It analyzes the current status of disability policies in the areas of habilitation/rehabilitation, employment, shelter, income support, access and disability related supports; and considers the prospects for future improvements in disability policies at a time when Canada's welfare state is experiencing cut-backs because of the national budgetary deficit.

Health care workers, social workers, policy makers, administrators and students will find this book to be an excellent course and reference text.

About the Author: Anne Crichton, Ph.D., was a professor at the University of British Columbia from 1969-1985 where she taught health policy to graduate students in the health sciences and spent her sabbatical leaves in Australia. Since retiring, she has been writing books on several topics including the Canadian and Australian health care systems. She is now doing research for the Vancouver/Richmond Health Board of which she was a member for two years.
