Research on charity regulation is frequently triggered by charity law developments. However, it is often unclear what impact such research has on policy makers and parliamentarians shaping charity regulation. Both authors of this paper were called to give evidence to the Parliamentary Joint Committee examining the draft Bill that led to the Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Act 2016. We review the possible impact of our evidence on the ultimate Act and on charity regulation more broadly.

Although rural Canada makes up 95% of the country’s land mass, Canada is becoming increasingly urbanized as cities grow and the rural proportion has declined and aged. These changes have socio-economic impacts on rural communities, including ability to deliver health and social services for aging rural populations. The challenges of aging in rural communities, such as disparities in access to services, are compounded when living with dementia. This chapter reviews the Canadian dementia care context, issues and challenges in rural dementia care, and Canadian research addressing these issues. The chapter describes the Rural Dementia Action Research (RaDAR) Program based in the western Canadian province of Saskatchewan, which has been focused on rural dementia care for over 20 years. Key RaDAR projects include the development of an interdisciplinary specialist memory clinic serving rural and remote areas, and rural primary health care memory clinics to increase access to coordinated team-based care in rural communities.
