Abstract: This project is part of the collaborative funding program « Les jeux de hasard et d’argent au Québec : Portrait des joueurs adultes et prévalence des problèmes associés » of the Fonds québécois de la recherche sur la société et la culture (FQRSC). This project is conducted over a period of five years. It aims at generating data on the prevalence of gambling behaviours and associated problems among the adult population of Quebec. The project is carried out in two stages – one in 2009, the subject of this report, and another in 2012, a follow-up survey. The current report describes the problems associated with gambling by type of game, and devotes special attention to the prevalence of at-risk and probable pathological gamblers, namely, the most vulnerable groups of the population. The presentation of populational tables in the results allows for recommendations to be made for the prevention of gambling problems and the treatment of players struggling with problems. This report describes the first stage of the project.
