L'objectif de cet article porte sur la politique du logement au Canada depuis 1945 avec une attention particulière sur la période partant de 1986 lorsque le gouvernement fédéral a commencé son retrait de la politique du logement. Cet article applique les théories existantes des changements de politiques, telles l'innovation, la convergence, l'apprentissage des politiques'et la succession des politiques sur les cinq phases de la politique du logement d'après guerre qui se sont produites au Canada. Cet article incorpore également deux sondages, menés par les auteurs en 1994 et 1997, sur les politiques provinciales du logement afin d'examiner les changements qui se sont produits depuis le retrait du gouvernement fédéral en 1996. L'analyse suggère qu'au sein d'un plus grand modèle sur le processus politique qui s'occupe des périodes de changement et de non-changement, les théories des changements peuvent expliquer des périodes antérieures charactérisées par un activisme, mais le modèle peut aussi expliquer la période actuelle charactérisée par une inertie. Étant donné l'existence des conditions pour le changement dans les phases initiales de la politique du logement, cette inertie est compréhensible puisque ces conditions sont largement absentes aujourd'hui. /// The focus of this paper is on housing policy in Canada since 1945 with a particular emphasis on the period since 1986 when the federal government began its withdrawal from housing policy. The paper applies existing theories of policy change, namely innovation, convergence, policy learning, and policy inheritance to the five phases of housing policy that have occurred in postwar Canada. It also incorporates two surveys of provincial housing policy conducted by the authors in 1994 and 1997 to assess the changes that have occurred since the federal government withdrawal in 1996. The analysis suggests that within a broader model of the policy process which deals with both periods of change and non-change, the theories of change can explain previous periods of activism, but the model can also explain the current period which can best be described by inertia. This inertia is understandable because the preceding conditions for change which existed in the earlier phases of housing policy are largely absent today.
