Abstract

Dans le présent article, nous proposons une analyse préliminaire de la réforme de politique proposée par le gouvernement conservateur qui consiste à remplacer le financement des services de garde par une subvention annuelle de 1200$ par enfant âgé de moins de 6 ans, versée directement aux parents. Pour ce faire, nous faisons l’hypothèse que face aux nouveaux transferts reçus par les familles, la pression politique fera en sorte que le Gouvernement du Québec devra diminuer le financement public actuel des services de garde. Bien que les effets sur la pauvreté et l’inégalité dans la population en général ne soient pas très importants, ceux-ci prennent de l’ampleur lorsque la population visée par ces politiques est considérée, c’est-à-dire les couples avec enfants et les mères monoparentales. Dans le cas de ces dernières, nous prévoyons des augmentations pouvant aller jusqu’à 60% de la pauvreté observée si nous utilisons un indice qui capte toutes les dimensions de la pauvreté.
