A number of research institutes are concerned with issues of social and economic justice, and the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) is perhaps one of the best known institutes working in these fields of endeavor. Founded in 1980, the Centre works "to enrich democratic dialogue and ensure Canadians know there are workable solutions to the issues we face." A good place to start exploring the site's contents is at the "New from the CCPA" area on the homepage. Here, visitors will find recent policy statements and reports on everything from Canada's health care system to the regulation of chemical emissions into the environment. Visitors may also wish to look through the "Research & Publications" area, as it contains editorials, news releases, and selected articles from their monthly magazine, "The Monitor".
