International Journal of Public Sector Management
Article publication date: 1 December 1998
Government’s continuum of policy instrument choices historically has included nationalization of enterprise. Today, the additional choice exists of the privatization of state enterprises. Canada is examined as a country in the process of switching from growing state enterprises (Crown corporation) to privatizing them. Although ideology, accountability, efficiency and/or financing were all reasons for creating state enterprise ‐ financing is the most prevalent driver of privatization.
