    Depuis quelques annees, les differences dans les heures de travail entre le Canada et d'autres pays ont fait l'objet de nombreuses recherches. Par contre, on a accorde generalement moins d'attention aux differences regionales dans les heures de travail, meme si certaines des differences interregionales au niveau de la moyenne des heures annuelles sont comparables a la difference qui existe dans les heures de travail entre le Canada et les Etats-Unis. A l'aide des donnees de l'Enquete sur la dynamique du travail et du revenu de 2004, la presente etude examine dans quelle mesure les differences dans les heures de travail entre l'Ontario et cinq autres regions du Canada peuvent etre expliquees par des differences , ce qui comprend les differences dans le statut syndical, la structure industrielle, les conditions d'emploi et les caracteristiques demographiques. Ces differences sont relativement efficaces pour expliquer les differences entre la part des personnes qui travaillent a temps reduit et la part de celles qui travaillent selon un horaire a temps plein toute l'annee. Par contre, elles n'expliquent pas pourquoi certaines regions ont une plus grande part de personnes travaillant de longues heures, n'expliquent pas entierement la part plus elevee de travailleurs a temps reduit en Atlantique et en Colombie-Britannique, et n'expliquent pas pourquoi les Quebecois sont beaucoup plus susceptibles de travailler selon un horaire a temps plein toute l'annee . Ainsi, les differences qui demeurent inexpliquees laissent entendre que des facteurs (ceux qui sont plus difficiles a observer dans les enquetes-menages) contribuent aussi a exacerber les differences regionales dans les heures de travail. Ceux-ci comprennent notamment les incitations liees aux inegalites des salaires, les incitations ou desincitations liees aux politiques fiscales progressives, les differences dans les conditions d'emploi, les differences sur le plan des preferences, ainsi que les differences institutionnelles.
