    A new model for making Aboriginal policy? Evaluating the Kelowna Accord and the promise of multilevel governance in Canada
    in Canadian Public Administration , volume 59, issue 2 ,  2016 ,  183-203
    Government policy-making affecting Indigenous communities in Canada has often been met with stiff resistance from Indigenous leadership. We examine multilevel governance as an alternate model for Aboriginal policy-making by examining a particular case study: the process leading up to the 2005 Kelowna Accord. We find that although multilevel governance may have the potential to produce highly desirable outcomes, its emergence seems to depend heavily on political agency. Meaningful and enduring change to Aboriginal policy-making will therefore likely require significant institutional adjustments to the Canadian federation.
