Written by Don Quinlan, Mary Jane Pickup, and Terry Lahey.
Published by Oxford University Press, 1999.


Government: Participating in Canada examines the powerful trinity that frames Canadian society: government, law, and citizenship. It encourages young people to discover how they can become active citizens. Written with a high-school audience in mind, this book is richly illustrated with photographs, drawings, maps, charts, eyewitness accounts and case studies that supplement the narrative. Topics covered include the structure of government, civil law and criminal law, youth and crime, the meaning and symbols of citizenship, bilingualism and multiculturalism, volunteerism, and much more. In the twenty-first century, a new generation of Canadians will be called upon to continue building and developing Canada. This is a valuable resource for young people who want to play a role in shaping Canada’s future.

Government: Participating in Canada is part of the Canadian Challenges Series, edited by Don Quinlan.
