[fre] L'approche de la régulation, développée initialement en France au milieu des années soixante-dix, propose une compréhension des modes de développement des économies capitalistes avancées. Dans cet article, nous présentons un modèle économétrique de neuf équations simultanées (dont cinq équations de bouclage du système) qui représente un essai de formalisation et de vérification de l'approche de la régulation dans le contexte canadien à partir d'observations trimestrielles pour trois sous-périodes comprises entre 1947 et 1989.. La principale conclusion est que l'hypothèse d'un régime fordiste d'accumula­tion qui a encadré le développement de l'économie canadienne passe relative­ment bien l'épreuve des faits. On constate aussi des changements structurels significatifs du régime d'accumulation fordiste pour chacune des sous-périodes. [eng] Estimation of a simultaneous equation model. . The regulation approach, initially developed in France in the mid 70's, is an analytical framework for understanding the development of advanced capitalist economies. In this paper, an econometric model is built with nine equations (five are pseudo identities) and is an attempt at formalizing and testing the regulation approach in Canada from quarterly observations pertaining to three sub-periods included between 1947 and 1989. The main conclusion is that the hypothesis of a fordist accumulation regime which characterized the development of the Canadian economy fits the fact relatively well. Structural changes of the fordist regime are observed and tested for each sub-period.
