Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The main objective of this article is to highlight the role played by space in regional policies and territorial poverty reduction practices implemented in Québec at different levels, from provincial to local. First of all, we propose a brief analysis of the phenomenon of poverty which, with the economic crisis, has quickly returned to the surface and also affects the societies of more developed countries such as Canada. Therefore, we will try to understand the importance attributed to space in the fight against poverty in the “Belle Province”. The geographical approach is at the center of this reflection for the spatial forms generated and for the territorial subdivisions involved. This approach will allow us to make preliminary reflections on Québec's social, economic and political capacity to address inequalities and social exclusion in its territory, verifying whether there is an original local path to support active inclusion.
