Résumé

The object of this paper is twofold. First, to present what we believe to be an original methodology for describing the location patterns of industries. Second, to apply our methodology to Canadian data, with the dual purpose of analysing industrial location patterns over time, but also, by the same token, of contributing to the debate on the possible spatial impacts of the so-called new (information-based) economy. It has been argued that the introduction of new IT’s (Information Technologies) has considerably reduced the weight of distance (Cairncross, 2001). As we shall see, the evidence is far from convincing.
