The objective of this paper is to identify robust poverty orderings in Canada. We present in details the definitions and methodology used in the paper. We conclude that poverty in Canada has increased between 1989 and 1997, that lone parent mothers are the most vulnerable demographic group. Finally, we find that poverty is lower in Quebec than in Ontario and British Columbia. L’objectif de cet article est d’identifier les classements de pauvreté au Canada qui sont robustes à un changement de méthodologie d’analyse. Pour ce faire, nous présentons en détail dans un premier temps, les définitions et la méthodologie d’analyse qui seront utilisées. Nous concluons que la pauvreté a augmenté au Canada entre 1989 et 1997, que les groupes démographiques les plus touchés par la pauvreté sont les familles monoparentales dirigées par des femmes et les célibataires. Finalement, nous obtenons un classement entre les régions du Canada, pour lequel il y a moins de pauvreté au Québec qu’en Ontario et qu’en Colombie-Britannique, et identifions les changements de méthodologie pour lesquelles cette conclusion demeure valide.
