L-7 - Act to combat poverty and social exclusion

Full text
7. In order to achieve the goals set out in the national strategy, the actions taken by Québec society as a whole and the Government, to the extent provided for by law or on the conditions determined by the Government, must be oriented along the following five axes:
(1)  preventing poverty and social exclusion, with a focus on developing the potential of individuals;
(2)  strengthening the social and economic safety net;
(3)  promoting access to employment and increasing the attractiveness of work;
(4)  promoting the involvement of society as a whole; and
(5)  ensuring consistent and coherent intervention at all levels.
Those actions must also, in their conception and implementation, take into account realities specific to women and men, in particular through gender-based analysis, as well as the greater incidences of poverty in certain regions or areas and the specific needs of certain groups in society having particular difficulties, particularly because of their age, ethnic origin or an impairment or disability.
