WHY: Corporatizing Canada critically examines how corporatization has been implemented in different ways across the Canadian public sector, from schools to hospitals and from utilities to food banks, and warns us of the threat that neoliberal corporatization poses to democratic decision-making and the public at large.

Copies of Corporatizing Canada can be purchased at these book tour events or online through the publisher.
