“Jean-Louis Roy’s book comes as a shock and a delight. It is part reportage, part analysis of Canada’s largest province. The treatment is thorough, generous (almost to a fault), curious and deeply researched. Very few Ontarians will have…tried as hard as Roy to situate Ontario within contemporary Canada and the world. There’s a French expression for such a book tour de force.”
– Jeffrey Simpson, The Globe & Mail

Ontario in Transition is a unique contemporary look at Ontario from a distinguished Quebecer’s perspective. Scholarly, erudite, sensitive to the nuances of the Ontario reality, Jean-Louis Roy weaves a fascinating portrait of where Ontario has come from, where is it today and where is it likely to go in the future. Chapters include: The Ontarians, A Changing Economy and A Cultural Society.

Jean-Louis Roy is one of the most widely respected and renowned Quebecers and Canadians with a distinguished career in many fields.
