Résumé

In a context of economic renewal and continuation of social and spatial inequalities, it is important to examine how working poverty has evolved. Which population of workers has been most affected by this phenomenon and how are low-income workers spatially distributed in the Montreal Region? To answer these questions, the present study is based on Census data for the period from 2001 to 2006 and on data from Canada Revenue Agency for the period from 2006 to 2012. It is original in that it has been conducted by a research partnership (the Neighbourhood Change Research Partnership—NCRP) funded by the SSHRC, and in that its goal is to study the evolution of income inequality and its effects on Canadian cities over a long period. The Partnership's databases provide access to data at several geographic scales. The current study broadly takes advantage of this particular characteristic of the data. In the following section, we will describe our definition of the working poor, with the goal of identifying people whose income depends principally on their participation in the labour market.
