Policy Options Archive

When Policy Options was born in 1980, the team behind the magazine called it, “a plant that grows, putting out roots and leaves in an appropriate environment.” The publication indeed grew, and through the decades brought together an impressive body of analysis and commentary on Canadian public policy. Much of that insight is still relevant to issues before us today. You’ll find the digital archives here.
