The Canadian, various Provincial & Municipal governments can (and will) provide some basic direction they (or the specific economists/think tanks/lobbyists/etc they consult) think will best move the Canadian economy overall out of recession.
This does not mean they will do anything for individuals. They likely won’t do anything that we, as individuals, directly see.
And we shouldn’t.
In most countries (including Canada), it’s not a government’s job to guide individuals directly. It’s the government’s job to provide general direction at the level & for the areas they are responsible for minding.
The closer the level of government to the individual, the more their actions affect individuals directly. To see how a plan is being implemented (or ignored), look to your neighbourhood BIA & community groups first, then municipal governments & chambers of commerce, and work your way up. The further up you go, the less specific any plans or interventions become.
Inevitably, it has always come down to individuals and their immediate community to create their way forward. The only difference between the past & now, is that we can share our best practices online.

Business Improvement Association. They generally organize events and work to promote businesses within specific neighbourhoods (ie Downtown, Sparks Street, Donovan, etc). They aren’t everywhere, but they tend to get funds from municipal & provincial governments to help provide certain events & services in their area. What they do and how they provide their services directly impacts those who live & shop in the neighbourhoods whose businesses they represent.
Tragically what gets most shared and spread the farthest is worst practices.
Like licking rats in a pandemic.
Please don’t lick rats.
Definitely true, but there’s no reason we can’t use something like the Fediverse to do better by each other. Individuals & local communities need to work together to build the world we want to see.
What’s going on Canada?
