This viewpoint reports on a multidisciplinary panel held at the 2012 CAG/Congress meeting that brought together a number of researchers with important expertise on census-related issues.

Article
Journey-to-work studies have repeatedly found that women have shorter work trips than do men. We argue here that this finding can be interpreted in terms of the evolving relationship between (1) the gender division of labor in household production and (2) the position of women in the labor market. We analyze changes in home-to-employment distances...

The longstanding debate around the merits of promoting social class mix in urban neighbourhoods has taken a new twist in recent times. A transatlantic and neoliberal convergence of policy advice, supported by the 'neighbourhood effects' thesis, makes a case for addressing deep poverty by spatially deconcentrating it, inter alia, by gentrification....

résumé ¡ Pour les résidents qui vieillissent, le quartier gagne en importance. Dans une dynamique de déprise associée au grand âge, les géographies personnelles diminuent. Les relations sociales tendent alors à se restreindre au quartier qui fournit un sentiment de sécurité. C’est pourquoi les gérontologues favorisent le vieillir chez soi. Toutefoi...

This article offers an historical-geographical account of how an aging newsprint mill located in Gatineau, in the Outaouais region of western Québec, with serious obstacles to cost-effective production, came to be chosen for a complete in situ technological reorganization project in the early 1990s. This apparent paradox is explained by locating th...

The qualities of gentrifying neighbourhoods – discursive practices of municipalities and purchasers: the case of Montréal. The gentrification of inner-city neighbourhoods can no longer be seen simply as the result of the accumulation of individual decisions by “new middle class” households. It is often stimulated by the State, by the real estate in...

Article
The discourse of urban policy targeted to revitalization of inner cities is increasingly marked by advocacy of 'social mix' or 'tenure mix' at the neighbourhood scale.

Article
This paper attempts to convey a sense of the increasing importance of the population question for the future of Canada and its social geographies.

It has been amply demonstrated in the literature that the decade of the 1980s was a crucial one as regards what Ley (1996) terms the "shuffling of command and control" in the Canadian urban system. Toronto's position at the summit of the Canadian urban-economic hierarchy became more firmly entrenched than ever before, with the region increasing its...

Article
The massive growth of two-earner couples may considerably modify the social morphology of cities. It has been suggested that the growth and spread of this family form should increase the social heterogeneity and, especially, the occupational diversity of urban neighbourhoods where it takes place. An analysis of the relationships between the geograp...

This article examines access to before- and after-school childcare services in the Montreal neighbourhoods; both are socially- and ethnically-diverse, but while one is experiencing some gentrification, the other is undergoing déclassement.

In this paper, I make a critical assessment of the ways that issues relating to the 'gentrification' of inner-city neighbourhoods have been conceptualised, especially in North America, in both positivist and extant marxist work. I aim to rethink the processes generating 'gentrification' and 'gentrifiers' and our 'ways of seeing' the results of thes...
