Current Realities and Emerging Issues Facing Youth in Canada: An Analytical Framework for Public Policy Research, Development and Evaluation
[This paper] proposes a framework for analyzing Canadian youth from a public policy perspective. The framework is a tool for reflection and its main goal is to help guide youth policy discussions in various sectors of government activity. It is intended to facilitate defining or revising government objectives in relation to policy research, and the development and evaluation of policies and programs. It provides a detailed description of the different elements to be considered in order to comprehend the issues clearly, and proposes a way of articulating them coherently, from an integrated multidisciplinary perspective.
