This study by Québec International takes stock of the main economic indicators used to assess the performance of the region. It provides an objective assessment of the results achieved over the past ten years.
The study also made it possible to compare changes in a certain number of economic variables in the Quebec City CMA with those of seven other Canadian metropolitan areas: Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver.
We chose these reference CMAs because, together with Quebec City, they make up the eight largest metropolitan areas in Canada and because their economic diversity is similar to that of the Quebec City CMA.
Six themes were selected for this analysis: economic growth, the labour market, economic diversification, real estate and infrastructure, the business environment and demographics. A list of the major projects underway in the region, a list of the main employers and a highlight of the economic indicators can be found at the end of this document.
This study by Québec International is based on statistical data published byrecognized organizations.
