Social housing public non-prot or co-operative was once a part of Canadas urban success story. After years of neglect and many calls for affordable homes and solutions to homelessness housing is once again an important issue. In Still Renovating Greg Suttor tells the story of the rise and fall of Canadian social housing policy. Focusing on the main turning points through the past seven decades and the forces that shaped policy this volume makes new use of archival sources and interviews pays particular attention to institutional momentum and de- scribes key housing programs. The analysis looks at political change social policy trends housing market conditions and game-changing decisions that altered the approaches of Canadian governments their provincial partners and the local agencies they supported. Reinterpreting accounts written in the social housing heyday Suttor argues that the 1970s shift from low-income public housing to community-based non-prots and co-ops was not the most signicant change highlighting instead the tenfold expansion of activity in the 1960s and the collapse of social housing as a policy priority in the 1990s. As housing and neighbourhood issues continue to are up in municipal provincial and national politics Still Renovating is a valuable resource on Canadas distinctive legacy in affordable housing. Greg Suttor is a housing researcher at the Wellesley Institute in Toronto. Provoking urgent questions about the politics of health in the twenty-rst century this collection interrogates how neoliberal approaches to governance frame health and risk in ways that promote individual responsibility and the implications of such framings for the well-being of the collective. The essays examine a range of important issues including childhood obesity genetic testing hpv vaccination Aboriginal health pandemic preparedness envi- ronmental health disability policy aging contingent work and womens access to social services. With specic attention to the Canadian context contributors reveal how neoliberal practices and policies shape the health experiences of individuals disadvantaged groups and communities by cultivating self-discipline while further exposing to harm the lives and bodies of those already marginalized in consumer society. Building on the theoretical conceptualizations of power and government of French philosopher Michel Foucault the case studies extend our understanding of the effects of neoliberal practices and policies in relation to social class gender racialized identity colonization and ability and pro- vide insight into how health-related discourse creates new requirements for citizenship and forms of social stratication. A timely intervention in the eld of health studies Neoliberal Governance and Health establishes the need for critical interdisciplinary scholarship to counter the individualizing and marginalizing tendencies of health-related policy practice and research.
