This paper will seek to illuminate the power praxis inherent in Canadian care-work which operates inside
of the non-profit industrial complex, under the modus-operandi of Western modernity. Examined here
are Canadian organizations of care which deal with poverty and its many symptoms. It is argued that over
the course of the previous three decades these organizations have increasingly succumb to market
principles in the so-called neoliberal era, and that the care sector in Canada, rooted in the Christian
missions, has largely been co-opted by neoliberalism in the name of productivity and efficiency, with
great affect on the regulation and governance of poverty
