Inroads has been offering informed, lively commentary on Canadian and international issues since 1992. It has a particular focus on bridging the political divide by bringing the best ideas from both Left and Right and narrowing the language gap by bringing the best from Quebec to English-speaking readers. Over the years it has also offered sustained coverage of Aboriginal issues, health care, education and the environment, proposing realistic policies to address these issues. Informed observers have reported from China, South Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, the Caribbean and the United States. Stéphane Dion, Tom Flanagan, Claude Ryan, Allan Blakeney, Reg Whitaker, Greg Marchildon, Janice MacKinnon, Tom Kent, Judy Rebick, Pierre Fortin and others with extensive knowledge of Canadian policy and politics have all written for Inroads, and its readers include senior civil servants, journalists and political figures as well as influential academics.
