Cet Article analyse l’endettement Public des provinces canadiennes, qui sont aux États subnationaux des Etats-Unis (États), de l’Australie (États), de l’Allemagne (länder) et de la Suisse (cantons), en plus des pays de l’OCDE. L’étude procède au classement des États Fédérés les plus endettés selon différents concepts de dette publique. Les résultats révèlent que toutes les provinces canadiennes, à l’exception de l’Alberta, figurent parmi les entités fédérées les plus endettées. La répartition des dettes fédérales entre les entités fédérées ainsi que les concepts de dette étudiés affectent toutefois significativement le classement. This paper studies the public indebtedness of Canadian provinces in a comparative perspective with US states, Australian states, German länder and Swiss cantons, in addition to OECD countries. It presents Rankings of the most indebted subnational jurisdictions based on different public debt concepts. Results reveal that all provinces, Alberta excepted, are among the most indebted subnational states. However, how the federal debt is allocated among subnational states and the specific debt concept being considered significantly influence the rankings.
