Quebec

Province Profile (2011 - )

Québec shows low levels of integration across all four domains: economic, health, social, civic and democratic participation.

Economic

This dimension includes eight indicators drawn from the 2011 Census. Québec ranks mid-range in terms of unemployment status and subsidized housing, but ranks low on other measure of economic integration to include: wages, low-income measures, labour force participation and non-official language at work.

Social

This dimension includes six indicators drawn from the 2013 General Social Survey. Québec ranks high for sense of belonging to the province, but ranks low for sense of belonging to Canada.

Civic & Democratic Participation

This dimension includes four indicators drawn from the 2013 General Social Survey. Québec ranks high in regards to voting in the last provincial elections and mid-range for voting in the last federal election, but ranks low in terms of unpaid volunteer work in the past 12 months and involvement with organizations over the past 1-5 years.

Health

This dimension includes five indicators drawn from the 2014 Canadian Community Health Survey. Québec ranks mid-range in terms of cost as barrier for health care access, but ranks low on all other health indicators (i.e., has a medical doctor, self-perceived life stress and self-perceived unmet health care needs).
