    Growing up in Québec

    It’s a go for the Growing Up in Québec study! The second edition of the Québec Longitudinal Study of Child Development (QLSCD), entitled Growing Up in Québec, will follow more than 4,000 babies born in Québec in 2020-2021 until they reach adulthood. These children and their families, selected by the Institut de la statistique du Québec, will come from all over Québec. 

    The information collected over several years will help us learn more about what influences children’s development and well-being, for example:

    • How do parents experience the arrival of a new child in their lives?
    • What makes for a successful start in kindergarten?
    • How does sleep influence children’s lives?
    • What contributes to harmonious relationships with parents or friends?

    Thanks to the wealth of data it will produce, Growing Up in Québec will become a privileged source of information for organizations whose mission is to foster the well-being of children and their families.

    The Growing Up in Québec study is made possible through the financial support of the Lucie and André Chagnon Foundation, the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux, the Ministère de l’Éducation, the Institut de la statistique du Québec, the Ministère de la Famille, the Ministère du Travail, de l’Emploi et de la Solidarité sociale, and the Conseil de gestion de l’assurance parentale. Dozens of researchers with expertise in areas related to early childhood development are collaborating on the study.
