Comité consultatif

Message from the Chair

Welcome to the website of the Comité consultatif de lutte contre la pauvreté et l’exclusion sociale.


The role of the Comité is to provide the Minister responsible for applying the "Act to combat poverty and social exclusion" with advice regarding the planning, implementation and evaluation of actions taken within the scope of the National Strategy to Combat Poverty and Social Exclusion. Building on its active involvement ever since its creation, the Comité hopes that its efforts contribute to the objective of making Québec a fairer, more egalitarian society.

Over the coming years, the Comité plans to focus primarily on the following areas:

In carrying out its work, the Comité consults with, solicits opinions from, and receives and hears requests and suggestions from persons, bodies, organizations and associations in relation to any matter concerning poverty or social exclusion.

I am proud to be part of a team of 17 women and men from various sectors representative of civil society, who come from a number of regions of Québec. I am truly enthusiastic about chairing a committee made up of committed people who believe in the importance of combating poverty.

Please explore our website to find out about our work and, more broadly, ideas, research and projects in the area of combating poverty and social exclusion.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or comments or would like to tell us about your own initiatives. We will be pleased to hear from you and, potentially, collaborate with your organization.

Together, we can help make Québec a collectively wealthier society with less poverty.

Enjoy your visit!
