CANADA, THE FIRST COUNTRY IN HUMAN DEVELOPMENT. LIGHTS AND SHADOWS

This article tries to present a panoramic view of the socio-economic evolution of Canadian society, mainly from an economic viewpoint but not exclusively. Starting from the classification by the United Nations of Canada as the first country in the world on Human Development and its maintenance in this ranking for six years now, it is aimed at identifying some of the elements that lead to this satisfactory situation. From there a revision of the evolution of its economic is intended within the framework of the policy model established in 1984 and that it is still the basis of present day policy. Consideration of the impact of the Free Trade Agreement is included. Some worrying hints about the capacity of the Canadian economy to support the level and quality of life attained by its population are detected concluding that an active democratic involvement of the population is of paramount importance to maintain the very important achievements of Canadian society.
