Abstract

The fertility transition occurred relatively later, and at a much slower pace, in Quebec than in most industrializing countries. Quantitative data can help to situate the general trends and the contributing factors. Qualitative data reveal the hostile context in which Catholic couples tried to fulfill their aspirations to have smaller families. They also show variability in the practices of clergy members.
