How Ottawa Spends 2015-2016

Now in its 36th year, How Ottawa Spends has made important changes to its format and publication process in order to take advantage of recent developments in digital academic publishing.

Beginning with the 2015-16 volume, HOS will be published exclusively as an e-book in a fully digital format.

This process, which will continue to be coordinated by our co-editors Professors Bruce Doern and Christopher Stoney (SPPA), will allow us to build further on our wide range of authors, and also expand our readership, while remaining as timely and current as ever.

If you have any queries about the proposal process, please do not hesitate to contact us. (See discussion below about chapter topics/issues)


How Ottawa Spends continues to provide an annual independent multi-disciplinary analysis of national /federal priorities , policy fields and overall fiscal and budgetary policy and politics.

Authors are invited to propose chapters in ANY economic or social policy field or on any key issues on the federal-provincial, pan-Canadian agenda.

Given the current budgetary and political objectives, and an impending federal election, the issues the editors are also particularly interested in proposals for chapters dealing with:
