Abstract

A study of regional development councils makes it possible to analyse the social capital prevalent in the regions of Québec. Defined as the capacity and the will to cooperate that occur within a social fabric, thus encompassing both the institutional and the individual aspects, social capital is seen to vary considerably from one region to another. This intensity of course depends on the historical course specific to each region, but it appears that three conditions may either facilitate or hamper the burgeoning of social capital: a common sense of belonging, the quality of the participation of the different social strata in regional life and the scope and strength of the dominance exercised over the population.
