The Quebec government's budgetary policy is of paramount importance for Quebec's economic development. On the one hand, the budgetary policy implements the government's various policies in various fields of intervention, and on the other hand, it aims to ensure sound management of public finances in order to maintain future financing of the various government missions and to promote equity between generations. However, it is imperative to implement processes to ensure a succession of expertise in public finance, public policy and fiscal policy in Québec.
It is in this context that CIRANO, in collaboration with the Quebec Ministry of Finance, is proposing a university competition aimed at responding to fiscal policy issues: The Fiscal Policy Challenge.
Registration deadline: March 29, 2021
Deadline for submission of the essay: March 29, 2021
The competition is open to university undergraduate students (with 30 or more credits) and master's students in economics, political science, taxation or any other related field.
