Abstract

L'article examine le cadre conceptuel de la mobilite intergenerationnelle en regard de la relation entre les revenus des parents et ceux des enfants ainsi que le degre et les sources de la mobilite intergenerationnelle au Canada. La principale conclusion est la suivante : la societe canadienne se caracterise par un degre relativement eleve de mobilite intergenerationnelle et, selon l'information disponible, les enfants qui grandissent dans une famille a faible revenu ne sont pas condamnes a toucher de faibles revenus a l'age adulte. A cet egard, le Canada se compare avantageusement a bon nombre d'autres pays, la mobilite y etant en moyenne plus elevee qu'aux Etats-Unis et qu'au Royaume-Uni et similaire a celle observee dans certains des pays les mieux classes a ce chapitre. Les causes de ce phenomene se rapportent a l'acces a une education de grande qualite et aux investissements non monetaires de grande qualite dans les enfants. Cependant, aucun element probant ne permet de lier le niveau du revenu familial et la nature de ces investissements.
