This Online Bulletin covers in greater detail recommendation number 6 of the Comité’s Advisory Opinion entitled Réformer la fiscalité pour tendre vers un Québec sans pauvreté.

Online Bulletin no. 20, November 2016


In this issue of the Online Bulletin, the Comité reaffirms that individuals’ ability to move according to their needs is a crucial factor of their social and economic inclusion, in particular as concerns those living in poverty. Transportation is essential to ensuring effective access to housing, employment, education, healthcare services, individual autonomy, and so on. This right is in fact a precondition for the enjoyment of other equally fundamental rights, hence its importance in the fight against poverty and social exclusion.
