This chapter introduces the book Advancing Social Rights in Canada. Canada's international commitments and self-image as a country that respects human rights are at odds with the reality of socio-economic inequality and exclusion many Canadians experience. This book sketches a blueprint for reconceiving and retrieving social rights in diverse spheres of human rights practice in Canada, both political and legal.
