Abstract: This is a study kit, designed as an educational tool for groups and individuals, prepared jointly by Development Education Centre in Toronto and Development and Peace of the Canadian Catholic Conference. Based on the Encyclical Letter, "On the Development of Peoples" Paul VI (March 26, 1967). It is divided into six sections under the following headings: Development and Under-development; International Trade; Foreign Investment; Aid; The World Food Crisis; Education and Underdevelopment. Each section gives some historical background, and with the help of solidly researched statistics looks at Canadian realities within a global context. Further readings and resources are also included under each topic.
