À la défense d'un idéal contesté: Le principe de Mérite et la Commission de la fonction publique, 1908-2008

by Luc Juillet Ken Rasmussen

En 1908, afin de lutter contre le favoritisme qui mine autant l'efficacité de l'administration publique que la démocratie, le Parlement canadien décrète que les fonctionnaires de l'état seront dorénavant nommés selon le principe du mérite, en fonction de processus administrés par un organisme indépendant : la Commission de la fonction publique du Canada. Publié à l'occasion du centenaire de la commission, ce livre retrace l'histoire de ce principe et de cette institution, nés dans la controverse et, depuis, le sujet d'inlassables débats. Il permet de mieux comprendre la résilience exceptionnelle et la contribution unique de la commission à l'édification d'une administration publique indépendante, qui constitue un pilier important de la démocratie parlementaire canadienne. On y découvre également comment la commission a contribué, au fil des ans, à trouver un équilibre sans cesse renouvelé entre trois objectifs, reliés mais parfois contradictoires, associés à la dotation de l'administration publique d'une démocratie libérale : la neutralité politique de l'administration, l'égalité démocratique et l'efficacité en matière de gestion.

Accord de puissance

by Ted Staunton

Ace and his best friend Denny notice that girls like musicians, no matter how dorky the dudes might be. So they start a band, and Ace discovers that he loves playing music more than anything he's done in his life. Fueled by Denny's tweets and a sound guaranteed to make cats barf, the band takes flight until a contest draws them into conflict. Their drummer, Pig, cares more about hygiene than music, and Denny's drive to impress the girls leads them all astray.

Apprendre à écouter et à parler

by Suzanne P. Doucet Élizabeth M. Fitzpatrick

La déficience auditive a un impact considérable sur plusieurs aspects du développement de l'enfant, y compris sur les habiletés de communication, l'apprentissage scolaire, les habiletés sociales et, au final, la qualité de vie de l'enfant et de sa famille. Par le passé, la déficience auditive présentait des obstacles presque insurmontables. De nos jours, la technologie et les techniques d'intervention permettent de mieux répondre aux besoins des enfants ayant une perte d'audition, et donc de les aider à devenir des membres à part entière de la société. Le dépistage précoce et la technologie d'amplification auditive font en sorte que nous vivons à présent une période charnière dans le domaine de l'éducation des enfants ayant une surdité. Cette éducation nécessite tout de même une intervention spécialisée de la part d'une équipe de professionnels, et ce, en collaboration étroite avec les parents. Compte tenu des approches novatrices dans le développement de méthodes d'apprentissage du langage verbal chez les enfants présentant des troubles de l'audition, la communauté internationale mise davantage sur la formation et le perfectionnement des professionnels. Appuyées par une équipe multidisciplinaire d'experts dans le domaine, les deux auteures abordent les principales problématiques médicales, technologiques, éducatives et sociales liées à ces troubles.

Au pas, camarade

by Eric Walters

The principal announces that the school is implementing uniforms, and Ian finds himself caught in a conflict. His friend Julia wants him to devise a plan to fight the decision, and the principal is determined to convince Ian the uniforms are a good idea. Ian wants nothing to do with the issue. While doing research for a social justice class, he learns that the manufacturer of the uniforms is on the top-ten list for human-rights violations. When he tells the principal this, all he gets is a reminder that the penalty for refusing to wear the uniforms is suspension, and Ian finds himself caught in a whole new conflict-one with himself.

Canada and Aboriginal Canada Today - Le Canada et le Canada autochtone aujourd’hui

by The Right Honourable Paul Martin/Le très honorable Paul Martin Paul Martin

Dans la conférence prononcée comme récipiendaire de la médaille Symons en 2013, le très honorable Paul Martin, vingt-et-unième premier ministre du Canada, s'appuie sur tout le savoir et le vécu de sa remarquable carrière publique, afin d'expliquer le défi d'obtenir justice pour les peuples autochtones du Canada. Se penchant sur les racines historiques des enjeux actuels ainsi que les priorités contemporaines, monsieur Martin affirme que le progrès futur des peuples autochtones du Canada dépend de l'atteinte d'une forme de gouvernement autochtone autonome, accompagné d'un financement adéquat. Mais par-dessus tout, il lance un appel éloquent et urgent à l'action : les Canadiens et les Canadiennes doivent faire aujourd'hui preuve du même type d'imagination, de générosité et de courage qu'ont démontré les Pères de la Confédération lors de la Conférence de Charlottetown en 1864.<P> Le Canada et le Canada Autochtone aujourd'hui. Changer le cours de l'histoire est une contribution vitale au débat canadien sur le rôle des peuples autochtones au Canada d'aujourd'hui et de demain. C'est une lecture incontournable pour tous ceux et celles qui veulent mieux connaître les racines historiques des défis actuels et réfléchir sur les questions de justice et d'égalité pour les Autochtones du Canada aujourd'hui. L'une des distinctions les plus prestigieuses au Canada, la médaille Symons est présentée chaque année par le Centre des arts de la Confédération, l'institution commémorative nationale établie en l'honneur des Pères de la Confédération, à un lauréat ayant contribué de façon exceptionnelle à la société canadienne.<P> ------------<P> In his 2013 Symons Medal lecture, the Right Honourable Paul Martin, the twenty-first prime minister of Canada, brings to bear all the knowledge and experience of his remarkable public career to explain the challenge of achieving justice for the Aboriginal peoples of Canada. Exploring both historic roots and current priorities, Mr. Martin argues self-government is an essential condition for Canada's Aboriginal peoples, but must be accompanied by adequate funding. Above all, he issues an urgent, eloquent and deeply informed call to action, calling on Canadians to exercise, today, the same kind of imagination, generosity and courage that the Fathers of Confederation showed, when they met at Charlottetown, in 1864.<P> Canada and Aboriginal Canada Today: Changing the Course of History is a vitally important contribution to the ongoing debate about the role of Canada's aboriginal peoples in the Canada of today and tomorrow. It is essential reading for all Canadians who want to learn about the historic roots of current challenges, and to reflect upon the issues of justice and equality for Canada's Aboriginal peoples today. The Symons Medal, one of Canada's most prestigious honours, is presented annually by the Confederation Centre of the Arts, Canada's national memorial to the Fathers of Confederation, to honour persons who have made an exceptional and outstanding contribution to Canadian life.

Ce que la rivière nous procurait

by André Burroughs Pierre Bibeau David Denton

La réalisation de l'aménagement hydroélectrique de l'Eastmain-1 a créé en 2006 un réservoir de 603 kilomètres carrés sur le territoire d'Eeyou Istchee Baie-James. Des recherches archéologiques préventives y ont été menées entre 2002 et 2005 dans le cadre des études environnementales de la Société d'énergie de la Baie James et du Programme sur l'archéologie et le patrimoine culturel prévues par une convention avec le peuple cri. Grâce à une collaboration remarquable entre les équipes d'archéologues, de géographes et d'ethnologues d'Arkéos inc., le consultant retenu, et de l'Administration régionale crie, un travail colossal a été entrepris et les recherches aux abords de la rivière Eastmain ont conduit à la mise au jour de 158 sites couvrant cinq millénaires d'occupation humaine. Les 18 contributions abordent autant d'angles de discussion relatifs au milieu naturel, à l'histoire culturelle et aux vestiges mis au jour, mais c'est l'amour de ces terres et de la rivière qui s'exprime dans chaque page de cet ouvrage.

Changer de trajectoire

by Sajitha Bashir

Pays au potentiel économique et social énorme, la République démocratique du Congo est confrontée au double défi de garantir l'éducation primaire universelle et d'élargir les opportunités d'éducation et de formation post-primaires pour sa jeunesse. Cette étude présente une analyse du niveau scolaire actuel et des inscriptions des jeunes dans le groupe des 12 à 24 ans et des opportunités d'éducation et de formation qui leur sont offertes dans les secteurs formels et informels. En utilisant les résultats d'un modèle de simulation qui incorpore l'inscription dans des programmes d'éducation alternatifs et le niveau scolaire atteint par la population déscolarisée, ce rapport traite des différents scénarios pour le développement du secteur post-primaire. Les résultats de chaque scénario sont évalués en fonction de leur impact sur l'accumulation du capital humain des jeunes et la durabilité des dépenses publiques. Le rapport présente diverses options pour relever rapidement le niveau scolaire des jeunes qui entreront sur le marché du travail au cours des deux prochaines décennies, à savoir l'élargissement du choix des opportunités d'éducation et de formation pour les enfants déscolarisés, l'extension du cycle primaire ainsi que la réorganisation de l'enseignement secondaire et technique/professionnel pour réduire la spécialisation précoce.

Cochonnet

by Vicki Grant

Dan is not sure he'll survive the boring field trip to a remote heritage farm. How could a place with no running water, telephone or electricity be anything but dull? To top it all off, the farmer knows nothing about farming and is angry about having to conduct the tour. When Dan sneaks back to the school bus, he discovers the driver and teacher have been bound and gagged. Who is this "farmer" anyway, and will Dan be able to find help in time?

Cultiver la différence

by Morris Goodman Joel Yanofsky Michel Buttiens Marie-Françoise Lalande

What goes into making a life successful and what does success mean? If you think about a life as a chemical equation, then the elements are obvious: family, work, purpose. The key is discovering how to get the balance just right. In Cultiver la différence, Montreal entrepreneur and philanthropist Morris Goodman shares his personal and professional prescription for success and enduring happiness. Born in 1931 in Montreal to Ukrainian immigrants during the worst days of the Great Depression, Goodman recounts the events, strategies, and lucky breaks that led to a thriving company and a life of philanthropic accomplishments. From his first job as a pharmacy delivery boy to his graduation from the University of Montreal's Faculty of Pharmacy - when he had already started his own pharmaceutical company - through the crucial moments that created an international business, Goodman depicts stirring accounts of Montreal's Jewish community and the development of the global pharmaceutical industry. Along the way, he presents vivid, generous portraits of colleagues and business collaborators. Cultiver la différence is a powerful rags-to-riches story but it is also much more - it is a heartfelt, candid, and inspiring exploration of what makes our lives rich, what we value, and why.
