Céline Le Bourdais is Professor in the Department of Sociology, where she holds a Canada Research Chair in Social Statistics and Family Change, and Academic Director of the Quebec Interuniversity Centre for Social Statistics (QICSS) Laboratory at McGill, which provides researchers and students access to Statistics Canada’s survey and administrative data. Trained both in demography and sociology, she has conducted a series of studies that document family changes in Québec and Canada and the repercussions of these changes on the life course of different generations of men, women and children. More recently, her research analyses the differences and similarities that exist between marriage and cohabiting unions; the impact of conjugal instability on family network and support at old age; and the role of growing cultural diversity in modifying family patterns.
