Abstract: The Saint-Roch district of Quebec City is marked by a process of revitalization, a societal mix,and diverse social challenges. This qualitative research aims to explore and understand a local intervention which is deployed there and aims to improve cohabitation between the various social groups. This is the job of the agent.e de mixité. This thesis aims to answer the following research question : How is the function of the agent.e de mixité negotiated at the intersection of the perceptions of social actors concerned by the challenges brought about by the context of revitalization of the Saint-Roch district and their expectations for this function? The theoretical framework of the research is based on constructivism and is more precisely inscribed in symbolic interactionism. Data collection was carried out with seven participants from five social groups: citizens, citizens living in poverty, community workers, traders, and workers in an institution. The results allow us to understand their perceptions of the challenges present in the context of revitalization and social mix of the district such as cohabitation, gentrification, marginalization, and judiciarisation. It also allows understanding of their expectations regarding the function, position, and skills of the agent.e de mixité. Subsequently, the results of these individual interviews were presented to a group of 12 people involved with the Projet Vie de parvis. The discussions during this meeting shed light on the dimensions of the function of the agent.e de mixité which are negotiated at the intersection of these different expectations and perceptions such as temporality, outlines, scope, and extent of function. All content has been compiled and analyzed using Dedoose.
