New Article on Participatory Budgeting In Canada Available Online

The Transnational Institute just published online a paper by Estair Van Wagner and Josh Lerner: “Participatory Budgeting in Canada: Democratic Innovations in Strategic Spaces.” (www.tni.org/newpol-docs/pbcanada.htm) The paper assesses the initial participatory budgeting experiences in Canada – the only ones in North America. In Canada, PB has been used with budgets in public housing, neighborhood groups, a municipality, and a school.
