Innovations in Public Service Delivery Issue No. 6 The Management of Integrated Service Delivery: Lessons from Canada
For several years, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) has been working with governments in Latin America and the Caribbean to strengthen their institutional capacities and simplify administrative procedures as a way to improve the quality of public services. This support includes both technical and financial assistance and encompasses the sharing of knowledge to better understand the drivers of government innovation. Analyses made on this background have allowed us to perceive the necessary balance between the promotion of innovation and the strengthening of institutionality, while seeking a sustainable modernization of governments, as key elements of change.

The 2017 CSD was released by Statistics Canada (STC) on Wednesday, November 28, 2018. Among the products being released is an analytical article co-authored by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) and STC which provides profiles of adults 15 and older with disabilities with respect to demographics (e.g., disability rates), employment, and income.
