dc.description.abstractThe role of the federal state in Canada has always been one of change and adaptation. This is particularly true of the state's role as it pertains to human rights based issues; those aspects of Canadian life which are most influenced by political, social and economic factors. Canada, in a neo-liberal economy, is trying to achieve a balance of power which provides appropriate representation of and protection for its citizens. This paper follows both the state's efforts to regain power at regional, national and international levels and the expectations Canadians have of the federal government. The two concepts meet in a discussion of the potential benefits of a joint partnership between the federal government and the Third Sector. It is the premise of this thesis that such a partnership will, in fact, meet many of the expressed and implied needs for both the state and for Canadians. However, the preliminary nature of the partnership movement leaves many issues unaddressed.en_US
