De 1993/1994 a la fin des annees 90, on a assiste au Canada a une baisse spectaculaire du recours a l'aide sociale, presque equivalente a celle enregistree aux Etats Unis mais sans que des lois historiques aient ete adoptees comme dans ce pays. Nous examinons la dynamique du recours a l'assistance sociale au Canada durant cette periode en nous fondant sur les donnees fiscales de 2 a 4 millions de personnes pour chaque annee, tirees de la Banque de donnees administratives longitudinales (DAL) du Canada. Les attributs particuliers de cette base de donnees, soit sa taille, la nature longitudinale des donnees et la disponibilite de renseignements sur le revenu, nous permettent, pour la premiere fois, de calculer les taux annuels d'incidence, d'entree et de sortie au niveau national et provincial, ventiles selon le type de famille. Nous examinons la gamme variee d'experiences de ces groupes, nous determinons le contexte politique et nous nous penchons sur les repercussions eventuelles des conclusions.
