Retirement to Gilles Seguin from HRDC
It was the start of
a tumultuous period that also saw the rise and fall of the ill-fated Lloyd
Axworthy Social Security Review (see the CAP/CHST Resources page of Gilles'
CSRL website for
more on that) and the announcement (in the February 1995 federal budget)
of a significant change in the way the feds would be contributing to provincial/territorial
social programs starting in April 1996.
Beginning in the summer of 1996, Gilles spent a year on secondment with the National Council of Welfare. During that time, he worked on Another Look at Welfare Reform (100+ pages of information on Canadian welfare reforms in the nineties, published in the fall of 1997) and the 1995 welfare incomes report. Check out the Council's Publications List for over a dozen online reports about poverty and welfare in Canada.
Since the summer of 1997, Gilles was back in the social program information and analysis business, in the Social Policy Directorate of the Strategic Policy Branch in HRDC. If you click on the Directorate link and scroll to the bottom of that page, you'll see a link back to Gilles' website.
Social Research Links is something Gilles has worked on his own time
using his own resources.
