"Sport policy in Canada provides one of the most comprehensive overviews of the field of Canadian sport policy as it has evolved in recent years. It is impressive in both its breadth and scope. The edited collection includes chapters from many leading experts on Canadian sport policy. In addition, it is a timely contribution given the flurry of governmental policies and investments during the last decade. (...) The book is well written and accessible to a number of audiences. Its primary contribution lies in its extensive policy data, which provide the reader with an accurate historical and contemporary portrait of Canadian sport policies. (...) Overall, this book makes a positive contribution to the growing literature on Canadian sport policy. It provides a comprehensive overview of sport policy in Canada and addresses a number of policy issues facing by policy-makers and sport organizations. I recommend this book for both undergraduate and graduate students interested in Canadian sport policy. As a teaching tool, it can be used for courses dealing with sport policy, sport management and the sociology of sport to help students understand the broader issues impacting the governance of sport in Canada. This book will also be of interest to both governmental and non-governmental organizations involved in Canada's sport system." - Gina Comeau, International Journal of Sport Policy and Politics, 2015 (http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/19406940.2014.954594)
