(p.121) Six Policy analysis in local government
Policy Analysis in Canada

Policy Press

This chapter focuses on policy analysis and policy capacity of local governments in Canada. It discusses the nature of local public policy issues, the dynamics of local policy-making, the demand for policy analysis in local government and the specific analytical techniques used by local policy workers. Drawing on content analysis of relevant documents and interviews with municipal policy workers, the chapter presents new evidence about policy analysis at the local level, which has traditionally received less research attention than policy work at the federal and provincial levels.

Keywords:   Canada, local government, policy analysis, policy capacity, public policy
