Quebec Governement


Resumo :

Since the Quiet Revolution, the Québec government has gradually constructed a society that is one of the most committed in North America to the principle of solidarity.

The ambitious social policies implemented in Québec have improved the distribution of wealth and given all Quebecers effective support at every stage in their lives.

The results obtained have been spectacular.

  • Québec is one of the places in North America where wealth is the most evenly distributed, and its crime rate is one of the lowest in North America.

  • For most indicators used to measure quality of life, Québec ranks higher than the average for countries that are members of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

  • Many of Québec’s initiatives in family policy and the fight against poverty have been very progressive.

  • When compared to OECD member countries, Québec ranks third highest in terms of the increase in employment rate between 1997 and 2012.
